    82 hmm... I wonder how trustworthy DxOMark is, I really thought it was going to score in the high 80's. Even tho these numbers mean nothing in real world performance it would be nice to see newertech really out do the predecessor.

    Yeah but if you notice the D800 has the an almost perfect (I assume it's on a 100 scale?) score and from what I've seen it's about on par with other professional cameras both Nikon and Canon, so I'm not really sure how DxO calculates the scores such as the D800 having 2-3 stops more DN than any other camera on the market.

    There sensor stats might be correct but I think their 100 point rating seems a little bit misleading...

    Canon users don't like DXOMark

    Holy crap, I didn't realize how bad my 5D Mark III sucks until now. I am going to sell all of my Canon stuff right now. There is simply no time to use ebay or craigslist so I must just pawn it and immediately buy a D800 or heck even the D7000 would be an upgrade for that matter... I finally understand why my photos suck... So obvious!

    I should probably refund all of my wedding clients as well because I didn't realize how much I was depriving them of.

    I don't mind the individual scores but on certain cameras when it's like X camera has .5 stops better ISO range than Y camera so X gets an 80 or something and Y camera will get something like a 65. Not that it matters but I'm curious how they manage to average scores that are set on several different scales (bits, stops, etc...), or if they are grading on other factors unknown to us.

    (And notice how all of my camera bodies are sub-par to mediocre in today's technological terms so it's not like every other Canon option is SOO disappointing since most other cameras in their current line would be an upgrade to anything I have now. Ha.)

    My IDs mark 1 is way down their list but I think it has great image quality. I am biased but don't care for DXOMark figures

    True tests come from the field use by professional photographers. I just bought a 5D mklll, could not justify paying $4000 more for the 1Dx. I shoot sports and I like what I am seeing from the 5D. I have 2 ID's and a 1D mkll and the 5D is a great camera.

    Essentially DxOMark tests objective sensor abilities, and their overall results are always heavily weighted towards pure sensor performance. Pretty much everybody admits that Nikon/Sony has a sensor advantage over Canon at the moment. Thus, Nikon kills Canon in DxOMark. Nothing really to see here.

    Well Guys,

    I just got back from the pawn shop and sold all my Canon gear. I immediately went to the store and got all my new Nikon gear including the D800. HOLY COW... If I knew how much better this was I would have never even thought about Canon....

    Here is my side by side image comparison. SO MUCH SHARPER!!!!
