Nikon D800E vs Nikon D800 Definitive Comparison

It took me a grueling day to get the images I wanted. One cannot just “shoot a quick comparison”, an incredibly naive idea.

But in the end, using a nodal slider, I focus-matched the Nikon D800E to the Nikon D800, using the Leica 100 mm f/2.8 APO-Macro-Elmarit-R. And I have the entire aperture series from f/2.8 - f/22 for both cameras so as to be able to show behavior between cameras and across the aperture range for each.

Surely the D800/ D800E both contain the same stunning sensor, as the actual pixels crop below shows.

But which is sharper? And are there other considerations?

I will soon publish a definitive study of the two cameras in my review of the Nikon D800 / D800E in DAP. I don’t think I can make a better comparison with a better lens. And I think the “answer” as to D800E or D800 will be as clear as it can be.

Unfortunately, the D800 / D800E both have me lusting after a future 50-60-megapixel DSLR. While very few lenses are up to even the 36 megapixels of the D800[E], a few certainly are.
