Wow go Nikon go!!! HA HA Trouble is it's not real world.
How does DXO explain low light performance when the 600 is bad @ ISO 3200 and not usable after that?? and they say its basically the best W T F ?
No good DXO, even your own tests show different to you results and scores. Oh no Nikon dose not do well no worries we'll post it as the BEST - yeah ;D
The 800 again noise is worse than others and all that res ? what did they do with it? Every real world testing and my own tells and shows why Nikon are cheaper and why they are semi pro cameras. DXO should put the coolpix camera as top dog ! score of 120 ha ha
Right... Sure... Know what? Get the D800 and the D600 in a store, take a couple of shots with your card and then process the raw files... You can print ISO 3200 on 60*40 cm with arguably NO NOISE.
Viewing D800 files on a 24" HD Screen @ 100% is equivalent at looking at an 8.3 x 5.5 feet tall print...
DxO is a company based in France, and if you wanna check their AR is available on infogreffe.fr the French trade registry agency.
Stop raging, seriously. Want to have a proof go shoot full frame. Take D800 and D600 raw file, no noise reduction then take 5DIII 6D raw files no noise reduction, reduce the Nikon files to 21.1 MP (like the canon's) and then watch again at 100%.
You'll see, Nikon SNR is better. Fact. By a margin, but better. Now, instead of raging about something so petty while most of us do not even print bigger than 60*40 cm (24"x16"), people should understand that by today's standard in IQ, at least in FF, there are maybe more relevant issues while evaluating a system than sheer pixel peeping sensor performance...
I use Nikon for instance, and I have criticism about some ergonomics in their cameras or other features, and about the lens line-up as well. If anything should be criticized IMO it's that.
But for that you would have to actually go shoot with one, instead of bashing something that you never ever cared to try...
