    I wonder what new products Nikon will surprise us with this year!!

    That D700 vs D800 comparison looks to me like it was comparing the same area of the frame on each camera so it was a 100% crop on the D700 but less than 100% on the D800.

    Net result of that would be exactly what we saw: D700 pictures are fuzzier because they are at 100% and at the limit of the sensor, not because they are out of focus. The D800 samples look sharper because they have been downsampled from 36MP to 12MP.

    So the D800 beats the D700 in low light, as it should because it has a later generation sensor cell technology and it has more of them.

    Comparing 100% crops from different sensor resolutions would make no sense. What matters is the picture that results, not what it looks like under a magnifying glass let alone two different magnifying glasses.

    So the D800 is a better camera than the D700 for pretty much everything other than maybe cranking out large numbers of pictures in a short time when you are stuck on a desert island with an insufficient supply of memory cards.

    2012 was a spectacular year for Nikon cameras and it’s difficult to imagine that 2013 could top it. I’m curious to see if the new pro DX materializes, but other than that the only things to look forward to in 2013 are some new lenses. Hardly as exciting as the anticipation of new bodies since Nikon’s lens line-up is already so versatile.

    Thank you Admin and keep up the great work!

    speaking of visitor’s statistics, it’s not quite fair to just put in
    straight percentages because there’s a lot more people in, say, the US,
    than in Canada (about 10x more).

    what would be more interesting
    is if you take the percentage of hits and divide it by the population of
    each country. that would give you a “hits per capita” measurement which
    would (possibly) tell you where all the die-hard Nikon fans are coming
    from! ^_^

      that kind of math needs approval from Congress! : )
