Have you had the opportunity to re-shoot some of this with a prime lens on the d3x?
Yes I have!
I did a whole comparison with the Zeiss ZF 2/100mm, more carefully watching focus (with Live view!), diffraction limits and using MLU of course again.
I also processed the files with various settings. NX still remains my preferred method for the NEF files.
My 24-70mm was perfect on the D3, but it has to be checked with the D3x by Nikon: Tolerances are getting even smaller now due to the diminished pixel size....
The D3x definitely does have a significant advantage in resolution over the D3, but only visible with the best lenses (as expected).
I have therefore already traded in my D3.
I also just finished my first professional job with the D3x with great success:
Winter advertising images for a local cable car company (in our swiss mountains). The D3x worked absolutely flawlessly and delivered!
BUT the gap between the 35mm sensor(s) and my P45+ remains big.
So whenever I can, I prefer to shoot "old style" with my ALPA SWA on the tripod, with focussing on the ground glass with a loupe: The precision can't be beaten.
I habe also published a comparison between the D3 and the D3x at 1600ISO using the ZF 100mm, but without another P45+ image to compare with:http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp...essage=30418008
Because of all kind of images and comparisions on the net with the D3x involved, I'd rather not publish any more samples.
Thanks for your interest.
