What? Canon gets an 81 and Nikon a 93? This is laughable. Absurd. Go look at the side by side pictures the Imaging Resource's Comparometer gives you. You'll see that this scoring is Loony Toons!

I disagree. Go to the Imaging Resource "Comparometer" site. Very strange how the Canon 5D3 bests the Nikon D750 in every shot, at every similar ISO. And for colors, look at the house photograph and you tell me which is better. I know they're .jpg, but better .jpg's usually indicate a better quality Raw as well. I'm just missing this, Nikons are wonderful and Canons are crap BS. I suppose that's why Canon is the overwhelming choice of professional photographers? they must like taking shitty pictures? I don't get it. Truly don't. Go to the comparometer and see for yourself. The proof is in the picture! I'm sticking with Canon. And I love the radio controlled new speedlights that Canon has, no such thing for Nikons. And this IS a very big deal. DXO is full of crapola!
