If you don't print huge prints, If you don't shoot above ISO 1600, if you don't severely crop your photos, not many.

Every once and awhile I bring out my older cameras. In this case the 2.7mp D1H. Just to see how it's holding up.

The top photo is with the D1H, AF 85mm f1.4D at f1.4 and ISO 1600.

The second photo was taken with the 24.5mp D3X with the same lens at f1.4 and also at ISO 1600. Neither photo is cropped but because the D1H was taken at a further distance the dof is greater

I needed to use the high ISO and wide open lens as the only light in the room was from a triple North facing window in the early morning.
