All - I am going to remove my cloaknig device that hides my stupidity on the way this thread has progressed since I asked the original D800 vs D700 at Hi ISO question.
What do we mean by "normalizing" the D800 image to 12.2mp. I assume that means resizing a D800 image to the same number of pixels as the D700? If so, wouldn't that be like comparing two sprinters by cutting a foot off of one of them?
I'm in the transporter, ready to be beamed down to understanding!
