    D800 gets highest score on DxOMark!

    DxOMark has tested the D800 and it has scored the highest score ever by any camera including MF cameras, and higher by a fair margin, on DxOMarks scroing of 95!! Yes, I know we can argue the merits, or lack of, of DxOMark, but even so, that's a very impressive result and says much about the D800's new sensor.

    Yeah pretty well a landscapers and studio shooters dream camera. To be honest a week ago I wasn't that interested in the D800 as a replacement for my D300, but it's certainly got my interest now, at least until the D400 is announced

    Cheers

    Its the pricing point that really puts it in the top echelon - performance is damn good, but the price puts it in a very competitive and attractive place. Glad I preordered one early .

    Nikon Aus had shipped some out on Thursday/Friday and my camera store received two and one was to be used as a rental and the other as a demo model. I am 4th or 5th on their list and as this store is an official Nikon reseller and a Government supplier of Nikon products they should get priority of some lesser stores. they are not sure whether they'll get more next week or not, but my fingers are crossed. I just hope I get it before Easter.

    Nice! I'm pretty excited to see the results of the 5D mark 3 as well as they have not tested it. It's interesting that D800 outscores the D4 as well! They really did quite a great job on the D800!

    But the scores are only part of the story. From the DxOMark page:
    Of course, we remind you that in screen mode — unnormalized, as is the case for 100% screen view, for example — the Nikon D4 comes out ahead, and by quite a large margin — with the SNR curves showing a difference of nearly 1.5 stops.
