Disagree if you may, but give the man his due.
No. And here's why.
), nobody argues that the Noink doesn't have better DR. But - and it's a big
"but" - his test has used a single converter (Lightroom) which, good as it is in many respects, does not allow you to pull up Canon shadows cleanly
the way that some other converters can.
DPP, for example, has an almost miraculous ability to "add DR" in the shadows compared to Lr; Optics Pro is good too, albeit not as good as it could be in reaching into just
Capture One 7 is also vey capable.
The point is that the supposed huge gulf between these cameras can be significantly narrowed simply an by intelligent choice of converter
That this test used a converter which does not favour Canon shadows (at x00% view, anyway - FFS) tells you far more about the converter than it does about the camera, and for a supposedly pro tester/photographer to utterly ignore the significance of choice of converter in getting the best out of a camera's files, is risible.
test well by testing in some supposedly equal playing field (in this case a commonly-used converter); you test in such as way as to get the best out of each camera, and that will often necessitate different converter choices.
Ergo, this "test" proves nothing about what the 5D Mk III can
do compared with the D810, just what it did
do in a half-arsed effort which seems more intended to bring attention to the testers than to the cameras...
