Hi Everyone, thought Id bring this up because it seams like a big discussion around my group of friends and at the office I work at. I work in film and television so since the D90, 5D2, 7D, D7000 etc have come out everyone is joining me in my camera infatuation. Everytime I mention how awesome the low light capabilities of the D3s and coming up the D4 the response it...well who wants to carry around the large square bodies for these cameras..I have to say I agree, money is not the concern for me to choose between the D4 or the D800 but its the size and weight. I liked carrying around my D800...it felt perfect for the size and I didnt mind the extra weight even for vacation photos. I used a D3s with the 70-200 and the 300 2.8 and I have to say it was too cumbersome. I cant see myself carrying that thing around to capture great photos, stills for BG matte painting and video plates...even though I would rather the ISO over the MP.
Does anyone else feel this way? What really is gained in these huge bodies? it cant be the sensor or ISo gain, it has to be speed and processing this speed. I dont think Im a wimp, I happily carried my D700 and 70-200VRII all day long.
