I'm confused by something here...

It is generally held that the D3s is about a stop better than the D3s. Perhaps that is overstated and it's merely a half stop better. I don't know. If the D800 is purported to be a half stop better than a D3, that would mean it's roughly equal to or a stop behind the D3s. Ok, fair enough, but then you offer this....

If the D4 is only better than the D800 by half a stop, does this mean the D4 has equal or less performance than the D3s?
