I decided to do a comparison today . . . using my Nikon D7000 with the 105mm 2.8 VRII Macro lens, and then tried the same shot with the Nikon D800E. I shot RAW (NEF) on the Nikon D7000, then Jpeg and RAW on the Nikon D800E. Below are the individual shots. Oh, and these were taken hand-held with a slight breeze outside.
