I'm confused by something here...

>Collectively, this means the D800 will be approximately 1/2
>stop better than the D700 and D3 in terms of ISO performance -
>largely because of the large megapixels.

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....

>The D4, of course, shares the technology of the D7000 and
>D800, but has a larger pixel pitch, so you can expect the D4

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?
