    Re: Nikon D800 vs Canon 5d Mark III

    I just recently jumped the Canon ship (more like a Carnival Cruise) and climbed on board to Nikon. I evaluated Nikon's lineup of cameras and lenses, rented them and performed countless experiments.

    But what REALLY sold me were the brilliant minds I encountered here at Nikonites!

    I know that this is a D800 vs 5D III thread but I had the 5D III and also bought the D610 here are just a couple test shots, the D610 pulls out more detail than the 5D III and the colors look better also,
    5D III EF 24-105f4
    D610 24-120f4

    Even at high ISO the D610 is better, I used to always laugh at DxO mark scores but they are right.

    Very simple.If you want to shoot mostly from 100 to 400 (1600) ISO then the Nikon is better choice. However, if you photographed mostly above 800 ISO then the Canon is much better choice.
    I love my Nikon D800E but I want the second body for love light situations. Nikon Df???????

    Now that there are manual focusing screens available for the D800, I may consider one. Before that, since all of my lenses are AI and AIS, I never considered it an option.
    Nikon FTn, F2A/MD-2, Nikkormat FT2, F4E, D850, D700, D7100

    8-15mm f/3.5-4.5 AFS, 15mm f/3.5 AIS, 16mm f/2.8 Fisheye AIS, 18mm f/3.5 AIS, 24mm f/2.8 AIS, 25-50mm f/4 AIS, 28mm f/2.8 AIS, 35mm f/2 AIS, 35-70mm /3.5 AIS, 50mm f/1.8 AIS, 50mm f/1.4 AIS, 55mm f/2.8 AIS Micro, 85mm f/1.4 AIS ,50-135mm f/3.5 AIS, 80-200 f/4 AIS, 105mm f/1.8 AIS, 105mm 2.8 AIS Micro, 180mm f/2.8 ED AIS, 200mm f/2 ED-IF AIS, 300mm f/2.8 ED-IF AIS, 600mm f/4 ED-IF AIS

    However, this 5Dmk3 brings a bit of confusion as to whether the 1dX is really worth the investment over the cheaper and quite attractive 5D.
    I think Nikon has clearly differentiated the D800 over the D4.

    When it comes to compare Canon lenses over Nikon lenses, it's a bit of a hair splitting thingy really. Both are extremely good, but Nikon is generally more expensive on pro lenses.

    Then for sensors performance, DxOMark seems to rate Nikon's sensors a lot higher than Canon. Let see how the D800 and 5Dmk3 will perform in that test.
    Please look at this Camera Sensor Ratings for details: DxOMark - Camera Sensor Ratings (Canon's best DSLR only comes at 10th position, behind 4 Nikon DSLRs - the D700 having the same score as the 1Ds Mk3 / The Canon 5Dmk2 comes at 15th position, below the Nikon D5100!!!!)

    In Dynamic range, Canon sensors score pretty bad according to DXOMark.
    Canon makes their own Sensors, whereby Nikon uses Sony CMOS Sensors.

    Some camera models only and not all. Your statement is also similar to Canon users who have been asking for an answer for the D800 in the high resolution department.
