I guess many of the responses were to be expected :-)
Troll? Of course, anyone who has a different viewpoint is a troll.
"I think you smell someone who blew £19,000 changing and is determined to believe it was worth it. "
Well, $12,000 actually which is a long way off £19,000, but that's a minor detail.
You seem to have B before A, when we all know A comes before B.
The change was prompted by taking a D800 and spending time in the studio comparing it to my 5D Mk3 and making a hard choice to give up on Canon improving any time soon.
That was 28 or so months ago, and they've not done so yet.
To suggest a person randomly changed systems, then made up an opinion on it's ability to justify that change is comical.
Is that the best argument anyone has?
When you're a professional, and turning over good money, changing systems isn't the big a deal people here seem to think it is.
$12,000? Take the payments from 1 - 2 weeks of shoots, and then it's done. It's a blip on the radar, and nothing more.
I'm running a business, and I want the best tool I can get when my clients are paying good money for our products.
Sure, if you're a hobbyist, it's a lot of money, and the advantages I love about my system might not be worth it to you, and they might not even interest you, but that doesn't mean that they aren't there.
They are, and to get back on topic, DXO scores seem to be on the money, not just with the D800, but with all the cameras I have personal experience.
The GH4 scores mimic what I expected form using it for a few weeks before the score popped up.
If there is any system justification going on, it is on this forum, where no matter what any other manufacturer does, Canon are still the best.
And few see that that's that's going on. It's not a forum, it's a fan club.
Too many discussions on here start from a viewpoint being absolute, and then descend from there.
In this case, 'there is no advantage to the D800 when taking real world photos, so anyone who thinks there is, is a fool and wasted their money'.
And that seems to be the pattern that prompted me to post last night, and the pattern that will take me back to casually observing this site and chuckling when I see those laughable biased arguments based on fandom.
