To Ellen Schmidtee,

Your are correct, but that's the DR of a single pixel, not the whole picture. When pixels are fine enough and closing to each other enough, human eyes tend to blend them together. In that case, the DR is not based on a single pixel but a cluster of pixels.

nearly a month after having aquired a D800 and used it extensively, I can say DXO is right. I don't know about the score part, but about the part that it is indeed the best sensor on any 35mm DSLR to date. Nothing, and I mean nothing I've used from canon even comes remotely close. DR is as stunningly high as they claim and high ISO performance is surprisingly good rivaling the 5DIII on printed output.

It will be interesting to see how canon will respond with the 5Dmk4 in 3 years. I suspect they are done with 20MP and the next 5D body will go back to the original 5DII formula that proved so successful: push image quality, not frame rate.

Cant wait for more DR to shoot images like this

DR is only an issue for those that need it.

Glad you are enjoying your new camera

Mother of God part Deux!


Quick Sensor Summary: Nikon D800E is new king in sensor quality
The Nikon D800E received an overall DxOMark score of 96 points, making it the best camera ever tested at DxOMark. It edged out the D800 – which was crowned king of camera quality back in March – by a single point.

Same as a fork is a pretty poor tool to eat a soup. Don't see a lot of people complaining about that.

Anyone else wondering whether the differences between the D800 and D800e are statistically significant?

Only those that get given a fork to eat soup

Probably means most 7D and 1Dx owners

To summarize the progression of technology and research advancements pertaining to digital imaging sensors:

2012 Nikon/Sony  = Win
2012 Canon          = Lose

Can we not accept this to be fact and move on?  I'm not switching to Nikon... however, I can still give Nikon it's due credit.

And birders are using the 5dIII? Nikon users would get a D7000 or perhaps even a D4. Its not like Nikon only makes the D800 and has abandoned every market but it. By comparison, your 7D would be pretty poor for landscapes compared to a D800E; but, you don't see people ripping you for that, because nobody bought a 7D to go shoot tripod-mounted landscapes. You knew what utensil you were getting; D800 owners do too

If you read the thread you would have seen that I said the d800 was no good for wildlife/sports as it was suggested that the D800 was the best camera

The 5DIII was not in the discussion - but I would guess most birders use the 7D or 1D series

Landscapes were not mentioned in the discussion either - but now you mention it I might take a 1DX for a landscape.

You have no idea what kit I have - so I will ignore the personal remarks at the end
