Nikon D300 vs Leica M8: Is a picture worth 1000 pixelpeeps?

We were looking at the latest updates at the Imaging Insider and we noticed this interesting experiment, photographer Mark Alberhasky squared off the Nikon D3 with the Leica M8. This is not a long review, but rather a single picture face-off. An old-fashioned western duel if you like. One shot - who wins? We won't spoil it here, you have to read to find out!

For more on photographer Mark Alberhasky, be sure to check this Imaging Insider podcast where he discusses photography and the new D3/D300 Nikons with the Insider, and check his blog.

If you want to re-produce this experiment, you will need some expensive ingredients, prices at B&H Photo:
* Nikon D3: $5000 + Nikon 24-70 f2.8: $1700 (total: $6700)
* Leica M8: $5500 + 35mm f2 Summicron: $2600 (total: $8100)
