Quick Sensor Summary: Nikon D800E is new king in sensor quality

The Nikon D800E received an overall DxOMark score of 96 points, making it the best camera ever tested at DxOMark. It edged out the D800 – which was crowned king of camera quality back in March – by a single point.

This small one-point difference illustrates how remarkably close the two cameras are in quality. Much like its sibling, the D800E’s sensor is unrivaled in its ability to: capture rich and varied color, perform well in extreme lowlight environments, and record details in both dark shadows and extreme brightness.
