For those of us who remain a little envious of the D800's sensor (and I already know there are those who could care less), is it the superior dynamic range of the D800 sensor, the superior resolution of the D800 sensor, or both?
I ask because, for me, it is strictly the dynamic range that I covet. Being able to pull clean shadow detail out of total darkness is a big deal for me. As for the extra megapixels, I would rather have better low light sensitivity if I had to choose. It would be disappointing if Canon looked at the many D800 v. 5D3 discussions and concluded that any dissatisfaction on the part of Canon users is due to the disparity in resolution. That's not it. Not for me. But I wonder to what extent that is true for everyone else. Thoughts?
both but more the dynamic range (especially since more MP would cripple the FF frame rate a bit and since Canon won't do, for whatever reason, APS-C and APS-H crops at higher speed, that would be a huge knock for a high MP Canon, although it shouldn't be since nothing stops them from making faster crop modes, of course maintaing it at FF is even nicer)
so both, definitely want more MP and more DR, but at this point I'm not willing to give up 6fps for more MP and I'll take the more MP as soon as they can be delivered at 6fps.
rather a shame the 5D3 didnt get to D4 levels of DR, that would've been some camera
