Comparison: Leica S2 vs Nikon D3x (Mosaic)

How does the 24 megapixel Nikon D3x stack up on the mosaic test against the 37.5 megapixels of the Leica S2, where depth of field is not a factor?

The base ISO of each camera was used here, ISO 160 for the Leica S2, and ISO 100 for the D3x.

The Leica S2 results on this page used the manual focus series (the best result) as discussed on the auto-vs-manual focus page.
