But. Personally I find the image quality of the files produced by the 5D3 superior. I actually liked the look of the shots produced with a vastly inferior 100-400L better. And it just goes without saying that the files I produce with the 5D3 + 70-200/f2.8 @ 200mm just demolishes those with the d800 + 200-400/f4 @ 200mm. Mind you, the lens comparison isn't really fair given that the Nikon is a super tele, but it's what I had to compare.


Fanboy! In all seriousness, no me gusta the D800's files either. They just look flat, and color is yucky. Thanks for the review :)

I wouldn't say that the colors of the d800 were yucky and that the images looked flat. In fact, I would have to say that I prefer the way the Nikon renders reds. I shot this of a hottie on the sidelines with the d800. Nothing flat about her!

This image shows promise. Please post some more pics, preferably without the mallet in the way :)

Just slightly off topic - the 1Ds3 renders reds better than any other Canon I have seen. I would say that images dont look flat here either :D

I demand more evidence. If I wanted to be teased, I'd find me a girl that's "waiting until marriage." The wife probably wouldn't approve of that plan, though.
