I've found a link to some D1 pics that are great.
"All were taken using the D1X, NEF compressed, using either the 17-35 AFS or the 80-200 D lense," says the photographer.
If the D100 can do this, it'll be fantastic. Wish more people would post pics like these... instead of "snapshots." ( somehow a post I did about the quality of a lot of pics posted on this board offended some new owners of the D100. Sorry, didn't mean offense, just an honest opinion.)
