5D Mk III vs D800 tests - unfair comparisons?
In consecutive recent issues of AP (21st & 28th April) the Canon EOS 5D Mk III and the Nikon D800 were put through their paces and a Verdict percentage rating duly given.
It seems that the reviewers thought the D800 worthy of 90% compared to the 5D Mk III's 88%. However, I couldn't help but notice that the 5D Mk III was tested as Semi Pro DSLR whereas the D800 was tested as Enthusiast DSLR. Yet in both reviews the Competition included the other camera.
If the 5D Mk III had been tested in the same category as the D800, are we to assume that it would have come out ahead of the D800 with a mark somewhere in the mid to high nineties?
Apples with apples guys, please!
I know you believe you understand what you thought I said, but I'm not sure you realise what you heard is not what I meant
