My thoughts exactly ... Maybe he wants to covert us to DxO religion
Haha, no doubt! I don't even disagree with DXO's findings...I just disagree with their desire to hold up Nikon as "the best" sensor...because they're weighting their entire score based on ISO 100. I find I rarely shoot at ISO 100, unless I'm using a tripod. Perhaps DXO should just change their name to "tripod marks the spot"? Or maybe "ND filter/HDR marky mark"?
I love doing slow paced landscape work, but springtime really screams out for fast-paced wildlife work...or at least slow paced wildlife when it gets too dark for fast paced...haha.
For me, the issue is, choosing between 5D3 and 6D. I'd prefer to spend less...and I've not tried the 6D yet. However, the recent "Popular Photography" review said that the 5D3 preserved a higher percentage of its detail between ISO 6400 and 12,800...than did the 6D. The 6D's detail fell off steeply above ISO 6400, where the 5D3's didn't see the falloff until above ISO 12,800. Then there's the superior AF sensor and fps of the 5D3. And supposedly the 6D can't AF in low light any better, if even as well...as the 5D3 (despite claims to the contrary, at least via the 6D's center point). So if used 6D prices also see a big fall soon...all of this points me toward the 5D3. (i.e., it would hold it's value better, and otherwise provide superior perfomance in every way.) Time and my own trial and error will tell.
