Greetings, "thread killer" here. I hesitate to inject this but if you go to DxO and compare the sensors for the 5D3, 1DX, and D800, and then actually look at the graph data, especially at display (pixel) level, then depending on the size of your screen, there is at least a 1/4 inch of daylight (LCDlight) between the 1DX and the other two for both dynamic range (above ISO 800 for the D800) and SNR. I've seen 20 page threads of diatribe devoted to differences of that magnitude. So that's got to count for something for 1DX fans, right?
Not sure about DXO, they posted some good and also trash values over the time; personally having shot the D800E against the 1DX side by side in high contrast and bracketed both with 5 frames just to be sure, the D800E brings out clearly more detail and DR at the same time. If other people have other results I will not dispute them but this is my experience. Otherwise I didn't care much for the D800E but the image quality was there.
