/Read all about it here.

Seems like a XXXL size even with square crop to 4912x4912.

What do you think?

As a Canon user, these announcements from Nikon still tempt me to go to Nikon. I still have a D300 and I was very happy with it.

I really hope they release some full resolution samples at different ISOs and also with both models D800 & D800E.

If you are upgrading to D800 or D800E, what version would you upgrade to?

They should announce the 5Dmark3 pretty soon... no later than March.

I also heard the resolution of 5Dmark3 is somewhere around 24mp.

Yes, around the $3,000 mark The trouble is that it will also be around the £3,000 mark when a more realistic exchange rate price in the UK would be maybe £1,800.

Wow.  I feel sorry for all those Nikon users who paid up to $8,000 for the D3X.

I know Canon will announce the Mark 3, but even with equivalent specs I think I will prefer Nikon. I invested heavily (for my means) on Canon because of video, but I had to compromise on some elements including ergonomics, faster/more accurate focus, reduced CA.

As a D300 user who didn't pull the trigger on a D700 yet, this seems like my camera for 2012/2013, definitely.

But which one? smile

I would be very interested to hear the opinions of other iStock contributors which of the models (D800 or D800E) may be the better stock camera. The additional sharpness is something that appeals strongly to myself (currently using a D300 with good lenses, but craving for more obviously...). The "forest/twig" sample image seem to make this a clear choice - until you see the "Kimono" sample image, which seems to have issues I am not sure CaptureOne/Aperture/NX3 would be able to remove? Nikon's comment that in order to avoid that you may need to adjust the distance is a bit vague (and I understand lighting/angles etc. make a huge difference).


I suppose the sharpness of the D800 would be good enough and avoid the moire issues, but the extra sharpness of the D800E is very tempting. But if that extra sharpness means a lot of studio shots will need extensive anti-moire/colour work to get it through the iStockphoto inspection...
What are your thoughts on this (especially if you today shoot high res bodies like the Nikon D3x or even MF)? Thanks!

Well, I'm very interested in this camera! I've been wanting D3x style MP in a lighter, smaller, cheaper (diposable!) body.

It will be good to see how user reviews compare and contrast the versions with/without the AA filter.

Also it would be good to see how the high ISO noise quality compares to the D3x.
I'm looking forward to seeing some reviews...

Looks great. Can't wait to see some real test shots from it.

This is what I've been waiting for!  2012 may well be a banner year for ground-breaking new cameras.  Its all been a bit of a yawn the past few years but with Fuji, Nikon and I'm sure soon Canon and even Sony in play we could see some mouth watering kit on the market soon.

ok, the image quality, sharpness per pixel and everything else may be great with this camera, but i'm still wondering if there will be any buyers who buy XXXXL images.


If so, please let me know

Well I don't know much about the differences between those cameras, but I'm going to guess that the used market price for a D3X is now well below $3,000.  D800 is a leading video contender as well, which just about eliminates the D3X from the market.  Nikon really REALLY should have launched a less expensive 24mp camera a couple of years ago instead of forcing devoted Nikon users to pay an arm and a leg for the D3X.

Never thought I'd ever entertain buying a Nikon, but unless Canon announces something soon, I think I just do it.

Sounds like a great camera! If I were buying it would be tough to choose between the AA/no-AA option. If I were a new system buyer, I think I would be looking at Nikon at this point and not Canon (I'm currently Canon).
