    Let's start up a little collection of our own images (not pulled from elsewhere).

    As KR says, the 5D is the sharpest DSLR at 100% crop. I'm a Nikon user, but if I ever move to full frame, Nikon has some serious catching up to do before they could sway me away from 5D and its successors, despite Canon's comparatively lousy ergonomics.

    That said, I'd like to see a 100% crop of an image from the D3x as well.

    I know we shouldn't be jerking around too much about sharpness, but, just for interest's sake, here's a 100% crop from the 5D MkII compared to one from my D40, taken with my sharp prime lens stopped down:

    5D MkII (first image from that list)
    [​IMG]

    D40 (a similar portrait type of subject), ISO 400, 50/1.8 Series E stopped down to f/2.8
    [​IMG]

    Yes, my photo was manually focused and at ISO 400, so any lack of sharpness could very well be my own fault.

    Still, I think the megapixel race is starting to matter again when we're talking about the difference between 6mp and 25mp, and also overall sharpness.

    Oh, yeah, and those are some great shots, Keith! You must have quite a talent to be able to grab all the sharpness from that camera.

    I'm sure the D3x IQ will be very impressive.

    There's lots of criticism about the insane quantity of pixels. But, I can't even explain how nice it has been. With kid portraits, it's tough to keep the kid still and frame the shot just perfect - you have to back wider and rely on cropping if they're a bit squirmy. I can crop the heck out of a picture now, and still be left with a 10mp image! The ability to do that is unreal.

    It also gives a huge wow factor to clients - I mean, even though the photo is of the kid's whole head, it's sharp enough to literally count the kid's eyelashes.

    Very nice shots Keith! That 100mm is looking great.

    My goal with this shot was to hand hold in low light @ f/4, image stabilize to gain a few stops (1/12th exp), and control noise in camera by using ISO 2500. I was pretty close to minimum focus distance and more intrigued by the gold glint and detail in the fabric than the eyes, trying to balance the emphasis there while isolating the subject from the boring kitchen and position focusing the camera.

    I wonder if I could get this hand held with the 24-70 f/2.8... ?

    P.S. Keith, ignore that email, I figured out RAW plus L jpg,... was not hitting set button. New interface, new day..

    If you go to this D3/D3x micro site and click on the D3x gallery button at the top of the page you can see some images at %100. Some impressive and some less so. Some of the models are especially impressive as well as background detail on some of the car shots. Still a rip-off though lol

    I should have I said that I'd like to see some shots by real people, not by Nikon themselves. That stupid flash site is not going to give me accurate results.

    Keith nice job on showing off some of the strengths of the 5DII. Looks like it should make a fine tool for you.

    How annoying.. Why would I want to scroll around a picture looking at different parts of it? Nobody has a monitor that big, so what's the point?

    It's not even jelousy.. It's like how HD killed the porn industry.. I don't need to see each and every blade of grass on the football field to enjoy the game.... I just want to watch football.....

    hehe I'll take it as a joke. If not, let me reiterate the topic states 'full resolution images'. If you are opposed to them, why'd you come in here?

    I guess I figured on full resolution at a viewable size....

    Holy god, my screen size is 1024x768, and your pictures are still retarded big... What's the point unless you're going to make posters out of every one?
