Just to add opinion from us spotters....

All this 'I need more low light performance' from DX shooters is not the whole story.

It's hard to make good 'aircraft' pix in poor light. Not for techical reasons- it's just that aircraft look better in good light!

So, I'm basically a 'good light' guy.

When the 'D400' arrives- I don't want 'low light' performance (got a D700 already).

I want detail!

I want max mega pixels in good light! So I can crop better when I just can't get physically closer-which is damn often.

So, for some of us, more mp = more detail = what we bought the thing for in the first place!
