1Dx is a 'low resolution' sports camera optimised for fps and high ISO.
D800 is a low FPS high resolution studio/landscape camera.
Comparing a bunch of studio and still shots vs sports shots isnt exactly a fair comparison of use.
Plus the Canon files are small, and probably in-camera processed, and shot at only 1 stop down from wide open.
You need to start with a RAW. Then apply the type of aggressive PS sharpening called for by the AA filter. Per Canon's White Paper on their cameras, for example, where they recommend specific sharpening for a specific camera/sensor.
Now, I actually preordered the 800E. But not because Canon sucks in any way. They have always delivered excellent products with state of the art image qualit,. I have faith that they did that here too.
But I am looking for a HQ, low-ISO camera to use in studio, not a high speed high ISO sports beast.
If the 5D3 is announced as that type of camera, I'll stay. I love my Canon lenses. And every Canon camera I have owned has been excellent for it's time.
