Well, comparing the ISO640 shot from the D800 to the ISO1600 shot from the 1D X, I'm pretty impressed with the noise on the 1D X...its damn good at that ISO! I think the photo is a little soft though....not sure what that is...over-aggressive AA filter/slightly out of focus/camera shake....either way, the ISO640 shot from the D800 is definitely sharper. I hope the 1D X doesn't suffer from the same softness problem as the 7D (which, while certainly manageable, is probably one of the few annoyances I have with that body.)

The slight softness on the skin could be due to processing, as her eyes look sharp to me. The ISO400 shot probably shows too much skin detail for a portrait.

I took some time to shoot a comparison between the 1Dx and the 5D Mark II, I found a scene with similar tones, then did a 1600 iso shot with the same settings (default jpg)

It appears the 1Dx and the 5D II have nearly the exact same noise levels, which would make sense considering quantum efficiency is likley very similar.

Here's a back to back comparison of a 100% crop of the 1Dx and a 21mp 5DII shot resized to 18mp. The noise has been enhanced with a high pass filter for easier inspection with an identical setting on the final composite:



It's worth mentioning though that according to DxO Mark Canon lied about the iso sensetivity of the 5D Mark II, so iso 1600 is really iso 1093 etc, a huge dicrepancy to make the camera seem like it has better noise performance. So this potentially means the camera if it is less deceptive about it's iso is somewhat better. Also let's not forget that it probably has better dynamic range and low iso noise and perhapse it has less banding etc so it looks better at high iso.

Simple: D800 is sharper, i.e. shows more detail (lenses? PP?) and 1Dx is a lot cleaner.
Can't we have kinda of both ? Is this so difficult to get around 27-28 MP with that clean high ISO ?

There is obviously insufficient DoF in the D800 Landscape images, but it also appears that diffraction is playing a big part, judging by the corners, although I'm not sure what the 14-24 is like in the corners, so it could be that the increased resolution is showing up deficiencies in the lens. The corners look soft at 50%, which is what I usually use to judge if it's good enough to print.

You know what, I'm not going to this forum is incredibly rude and has no respect for people putting forth the effort to do research.

this is a lot better than my 40D...

so i approve haha. great quality though for the ISO's . the pictures themselves  are sort of alright.

thank you for the comparison.
but resizing is leveling the noise, so would you, please, post 5dm2 sample "as is" without resizing to compare individual pixel noise? thanks in advance!

I wasn't particularly impressed with the samples either.  Certainly, they are good, but at ISO 1600, so is my 5D MK II.  I'm not about to abandon it until I see some high ISO raw images that are better at 12,800 and higher.

The 1600 looks at least one stop cleaner than the 5d mark II, with certainly much less chroma. Of course that is based on a properly exposed raw with no noise reduction what so ever. I would be tickled to death to get ISO 1600 images this clean at a wedding reception!!
here is a sample with sharpening set to 0, and no noise reduction converted in DPP. With a little tweaking it was acceptable. I did not lighten or darken this image in raw. I think its a good comparison of how good the 1dx is at 1600.

OMG!
This can not be true! I don't see any pattern noise in those Canon pictures!
I know they are Jpegs, but something like this i would be seeing it (at least something) even in a Jpeg file.
O course we can be 100% sure only if we have the Raws ... but I am confident that this time Canon has done well its homework (with this pattern noise issue).
I can't say anything about DR from these Jpegs.

I hope only that will be true with Canon 5D III too.
