I mainly lurk here, because my doom is already bad for my wallet - full Leica M system and few SLR's from Nikon.
I saw with great anticipation the arrival of the D800/E and the net is flooded with reviews and comparisons of the D800 vs the best MFD and it looses.
Well, it should.
But what about real world tests ? And by real world, I mean comparable.
One MFD that I lust after these days is the Hassie H3D 39 ... no D800 comparisons with it - it should prove interesting, same mp.
Or event bit lower MP ld hassies with 21 and so on - so many times I hear MFD acolyties screaming about smooth colour transitions and this and that.
Nobody with a D800 and a less than 50mp back to do a nice side by side ? Doing a 3k D800 comparison vs a top of the line 20k MFD with almost two times the megapixels is pointless, not starting with larger sensor etc etc.
Sorry if this has already been done - and if so, point me in the right direction - just curious if we pitch a D800E against a similar MP MFD and see if the results (apart from obvious DOF and COC differences )are similar or we can see the strenghts of MF (or weaknesses, apart from the more than obvious high iso limitation, where the D800 excells - again pointless to compare )
