Indeed

I mean you can do this after taking the photo. Press the centre button and zoom in on the focus point. As I no longer have a D300 or even a manual for one, I cannot tell you where this is, but presumably the playback menu?

Yes - it is a wee bit tighter but it is a generic FX issue, especially coming from the D300 or 300s.

How many sensors do Leica give us?

Agree - though that may not apply, with hindsight, to pro DX glass..

ROFL - for someone who's never met me you know me too well! The tragic fact is that it was the 85mm drove me hard towards this - see my recent posts in the lens forum, one laying to rest a very old thread.

Cheers Neil and thanks for your advice now and a few months ago...

BTW looking at early shots I would gauge noise similar between

D200 - 1600 ASA
D300 - ISO 3,200
D600 - ISO 25,600

But I cautiously expect with the D600 you really get another stop as the greater resolution allows more latitude for noise removal. Here is a random shot I just took at ISO 25,600 - not one that i will be printing but it makes the point.
