Not for everyone but, I've been waiting for a side by side for weeks, asking for such as this. Perrone and others, so far budding D800 shoots making money, video not so much AFAICT.

Bottom line, Nikon is smoking the Canon throughout the range in this evaluative, even with noise at 4.2.2, it is a sharper signal, cleans up better in post and a good two stops better across the range in ambient conditions, which, is what I have been asking about from the anointed, for weeks.

Non help is all I can say about Nikonians so far, but, it's a stills organization so accepted and expected.

I'll finish the purchase tomorrow.

I have a five camera shoot (video) on Saturday, the D800 now becomes camera #1 and I was hired for D3S stills, with video not in the budget but, I advised that NOT having video was a big mistake.

Now it is is expected to be DVD/BluRay for the label's PR department. Fine by me.
