Nikon D800E vs Nikon D800 Definitive Comparison with Leica 100/2.8 APO

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

To achieve these results, considerable time and care were required. And don’t think for a minute that just any lens will produce quality this high, or that casual focusing will deliver the outstanding sharpness as shown. The images represent the very best that is possible from the D800 / D800E.

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 at a distance of ~195cm (1mm increments of focus).

The results

Now published in my review of the Nikon D800 / D800E in DAP is a comparison of the Nikon D800E to the Nikon D800.

The aperture series from f/2.8 - f/22 is shown in 1/2 stops for all the actual pixels crops from both cameras, so various types of interesting analysis may be done.

Also posted is a new ACR sharpening evaluation for the D800E and D800 with sharpening values for each camera of 0/10/20/30/40/50/60/70/80/90/100, so that one can assess the relative merits of different levels of sharpening.

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.
