I am confused....why all the hand wringing and angst over the D800 not being as good as the D700? Has anyone seen any evidence that the D700 is better in low light? Has even one hands on shooter on assignment, any expert measuring DR and the details of the files or any knowledgeable insider commented anything negative about the low light performance of the D800? I have not.
The more credible the source, the most enthusiasm they have shown. For example, our own Bill Claff has measured the noise and DR of files already available and presented quite informative analysis and is much more optimistic than those who have not either used the camera or analyzed the files it produces.
Other than 2 frames per second what possibly does a D700 do better than the D800? AF, no, it got the new D4 AF. Metering? No, it got the D4 91k sensor. Low IS0 DR? No contest. High ISO, closer to the D3s and D4 than D700. Res? Forget it...
Can someone explain the anger over Nikon releasing a clearly superior camera for a moderate price?
