I tried to match FOV as best I could but as you can see from the equivalent crop that I was off a bit. I know it is difficult to see the differences here as they are hard to see. The Canon has apparent sharpness with more obvious contrast sharpening. The Nikon has a bit finer detail but it is difficult to make out on these crops. I will need to do more testing.

Both cameras are producing excellent files. There still is the big price difference

I was only kidding ;)

How is the noise on the D3300?

 

Still have not had time to go photo hunting with my J1, so muffins it is!

 

Not the best photo on earth, but the J1 fares pretty well under low light conditions.  Using my Takumar lens+Adapter opened wide at f2.5

For $100 total this is a pretty good combination!

The files look like noise is handled very well up to about 1600-3200. It is subjective and open to interpretation. I would say maybe about a stop better than your cool J1. I really like the one series. HAve you played with the slo-mo video?

Not yet, did not even look at the video features yet!  Not the best camera, especially with the kit lens attached.  But it is good, and very handy!
Still haven't got to test daylight performance, so my impressions may change XD

Damn looks sexy, but I wonder if it gets hot to touch in the summer.

Got $4k burning a hole in your pocket and want to resolve a full 29MP from your D800?

 

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2428155,00.asp

 

It scored 45 on DSOMark with the D800, the highest rated so far.

 

Edit: Found a photoset made using it and the D800: http://www.flickr.com/photos/silver2silicon/sets/72157636266307353/with/12260663863/

Or, if one cannot spend ~ $7K on D800+Otus, instead of spending $4K on the Otus, which does not autofocus, one could get very close with 4 times cheaper Sony Zeiss FE55mm f/1.8, which scored just a hair lower than Otus per DXO testing, second best score for any lens and even has AF.  In the end, both lenses were tested via the Sony/Nikon 36 MP sensor.

Or just get a Mamiya medium format film camera and get even better resolution at a tiny fraction of the price. I got an RB67 kit on ebay for the price of one Nikon lens and it outshoots any DSLR.
