#13. "RE: Need help understanding and deciding (Was: image quality comparisons to D300?)"
In response to In response to 12


Ann Arbor, US
          

Thank you all for the very detailed and (as usual) information-rich responses.

In static shots I take, unless the camera is mounted on a tripod, when the subject is off-center I first focus, then reframe and take thew shot. So again, a single-AF point should be enough. In action shots, I have not been very successful if the subject was not centered when the trigger was pressed (i.e., not-so-great tracking...). Maybe that's where the increased number of AF points will make me happy. And yes, being an engineer -- I totally understand the potential conflict between the multitude of available information and the horsepower required to process it...

I agree that maybe the true question of selection is "D7000 or D400."
"If I waited that long, I might as well wait for the D400, right?" Well, before the inception and reviews of the D7000 came along, that was exactly my thinking. But I believe that the price of the D400 is going to be closer to the D700 than to the D300s, I also believe that it will be another at least 6 months before we see that D400 (and I don't want to wait that long), and given the current price/performance of the D7000-- I think that I'll wait with the D400 (or D500?) for a future upgrade.

Thanks again,
Zevi
