Thanks for noticing Steve.

I have been enjoying taking pictures with my D7000, so I haven't been hitting the forums much.

I have always been under the assumption that larger photosites meant better high iso performance given similar technology. I assumed the D4's super iso performance which surpasses the D800 was due to the larger photosite. As the D600 is somewhere in between I thought the iso performance would be as well. I have read some mentioning it is the total size of the sensor and not the individual photosite size. But then why wouldn’t the D800 have similar high iso performance to the D800? This still confuses me.

Anyway if this camera had similar iso performance to the D4 I probably would make the leap to FX. For now I am convinced that my gear is not the weak link in the chain to producing great images. I'll probably stick with my camera for now unless I make an impulse purchase or something convinces me otherwise. I do like the idea of being able to focus at F8. I thought my focus was not perfect when I used a 300mm 4.0 with my 1.7 TCE and it would likely be better with this camera. I have been doing less wildlife lately so this is not as crucial to me.
We will have to wait and see what the tests show.

BTW I dont get why someone would wait for the prices to come down before making a purchase. If I thought it would help me, I would be on the waiting list. With technology changing so quickly, why wait 7-8 months to possibly save 200$ US for a camera which will likely be upgraded in 3-4 years? This is less than 5% of the purchase price but perhaps 20-25% of it's state of the art life cycle? Anyway just my thought.
Can't wait to hear what people think once they take delivery.
