It's a good thing that the D700 does not have the same pixel density of the D300, or--everything else being equal--we would logically have more noise at any given ISO...and lower quality, especially at higher ISOs, no?

Imagine dealing with a 20MP image with more noise and poorer quality. No thank you.

Heck, why not advocate a 10-12 MP sensor from a point-and-shoot? Those are even more dense, no? Those sensors are far tinier, deliver more noise, poorer quality, and have even more limited high ISO choices, correct?
