Perrone and Steve, THANKS!

Steve you bring in a very interesting consideration then.

Since I have both bodies on deposit/order, it remains to be seen then.

I was late to both buy ins, so my purchases are likely late in the first wave cycle, unlike the D7K which I was 2nd in line for at my retailer. That will give me time to decide, one, none or both.

The theory (MP's vs noise) at averaged 2MP frame rates, line skips etc, especially with 4.2.2 output on HDMI direct, would somehow seem to be more resolved at the base rate, but, as you point out, more on that later.

Now Nikon talked up the B frame, does that mean that typical I frame transcoding (ProRes or CineForm) is now somehow affected?

I thought I frames are the pure sample, and that P and B are subsampled, does that make any sense, or perhaps I am misunderstanding the hype or technical context.

OK then..for now, baited breath an all...

Many thanks,

Rob
