| p.1 #6 · Canon 1D X: The best of Canonís full-frame sensors |
I think for me the takeaway is that the image quality performance of all these cameras has crossed the point where they can all capture excellent images and the differences in the high end sensor scores are much less important. Given that, my preference leans towards the camera that is most capable for getting the shot in the heat of the moment, and the 1D X is darn good at that.
Here's a little comparison that you all may be interested in that I did a month or two ago. Canon 1DX (Canon's best) vs the D800E (best DR, best overall) vs the D3S (best high ISO). First up are full frame images then a 100% crop comparison. All tripod mounted, live view focused, identical exposure settings, etc. Shot in RAW, processed in LR 4.2, all sharpening and luminance NR zeroed out. Color NR at 30.
First pairing is 1D X and D3S at ISO 25,600. Second pairing is the 1D X and D800E shot with underexposed foreground then with +3 exposure added in LR.
1DX ISO 25k full frame
D3S ISO 25k full frame
1DX ISO 100, 3 stop push full frame
D800E ISO 100, 3 stop push full frame
