There are definite sharpening halos in that shot.

I suppose I'm the only one who finds women with facial hair rather sexy :D Distracting facial hair aside, this is one of the better sample image, IQ wise, from the D800 I've seen thus far.

WOW!  a peach-fuzz model was ideal to see the detail capability of that system.  This is gonna send models and their makeup artists out to buy microscopes to work on them before a shoot!  ;D (try a Mantis Elite for that, actually)

And you can really see just how shallow a DoF 85mm at f/8 really has, tip of her nose is quite OoF.

I'm really itchin' to place an order for one of these things just so I can see all the discarded cigarette butts littering a landscape shot.

Now, i would like to see a landscape shot, with full sun and some clouds in the scene and shadow detail in the woods or under a deeply shaded area using a 50mm or wider at about f/8 to 11. (yes, a bit past DLA but that'll be a given)

Man, does she need a shave or what!

Nice looking girl too.

Obviously the lighting just emphasised the hair on her face.
Maybe the photographer should have used a good soft box.

Look at her lower lips area at 100%  :o  :'( This camera is not meant for taking portraits of women.  :-X

In the world of fashion, what you get on a cover has been edited at the sub pixel level. That's why they use medium format with 40+mp for shooting women 8)

I agree with what others said that the light is making the facial hair, which all women have, glow and show more than usual. either make the light softer, chang the angle, or hand her a razor  ;D

so the D800 is well suited to the task of photographing women so that they can be photoshopped into goddesses.

BTW the resolution of the D800 is FREAKING STUNNING!!!

Killer resolution! Can be used for some serious forensic or research applications, just think of super macro outcomes...

Have no idea how you people can still try to minimize this camera comparing it with 5DIII...
Most dangerous kind of people, blind followers without ability to think clearly, shooting them self in the foot just to proof the point... same people also are going to vote soon again.

Two different cameras for two different purposes. Stop shooting yourself in the foot by blindly saying MPs are the answer. Thank goodness troll votes count for nothing.

JEEZ, LUIZE!! I would sue the photographer if I was that lady.

Detail is impressive. I think the 5d3, or even the "old" Mark 2 that I own could deliver similar sharpness with the right lighting and lens. The 100L macro comes to mind. Or the 85/1.2

I think the d800 is an impressive machine, if not slightly (sarcastically) overrated.

Impressive quality. Enlarge on eye and tell what lamp was used :)

Meh, I don't buy it.

Models already get in front of MFDB's with similar resolution or higher.

Plus I'm sure if she was naked, in a swim suit or otherwise provocatively posed then folks would be ... complaining less about the close ups from 36MP.

If anything, this just proves why photoshop is part of the workflow for many professionals.

Horribly over-sharpened photo I am amazed at how many seem to think it is the fault of the camera when it is clearly caused in post processing by excessive sharpening.

2.5 pixels of Gaussian blur (in Photoshop) helps things immensely

I don't find it sharpened. Rather camera's resolution.

"Blindly following" and simply not finding 36mp appealing are two different things.

A beauty dish, I'd say. Somewhat counter-intuitive to the name, beauty-dish lighting can be relatively harsh/direct (compared to a softbox) and is often used on models with very good skin, or with professionally-applied makeup.

The image has definitely been oversharpened. There are telling artifacts in a few areas.
