Have just taken a look at the ISO3200 High Res sample and have to say its shockingly bad , more noise than my current 5d2 and its not even sharp , is there something wrong here ?

That photo was a little soft, I've replaced with a sharper one. Noise reduction was on default settings. Thanks.

nice one thanks Josh , thats certainly sharper , it still however throws open a masssive question on the noise side of things especially if this was taken in daylight or similar , on that camera I would not be expecting to see noise at iso3200 or certainly not at that level !

Seeing high ISO samples elsewhere and compared with those from the D3s, I'd say the earlier camera is significantly better at higher sensitivities than its replacement. Comparing ISO 1k shots (the D3s' maximum), I'd say that even taking pixel number into account there is more real resolution (ie detail) apparent in the 12Mp camera's output.

This is a major fail for Nikon if this represents the reality of the situation - for a very modest increase in resolution at base ISO, they have appeared to sacrifice low-light performance over a now three year old model.

If the 1Dx does not prove equally as bad (and I doubt it), Nikon may have a problem on its hands. I say that as a brand agnostic - I think the reverse might be true of 5D3 vs D800 - at least at current RRPs

The examples I have seen of the 5D3 so far certainly represent a qualifiable increase in performance as far as low noise at high iso and retention of detail are concerned vs the 5D2 anyway , this whole issue is going to unravel slowly over the next few months and will be interesting to follow , certainly put off jumping into any purchases right now thats for sure ...

I've seen here some subjective comments. Personally I really like D4. Nobody has spoken about video capability from both marks (Canon and Nikon) . 5D Mk II has already proven its supremacy...till the 5D MkIII has been released. Now it's time for Nikon to fight back. D800 and D4 are ready to meet their opponents, 5D Mk III and 1DX. Let's see this video test and will comment after seen it. Smile
