Only sad part about these pictures is the ownership of the camera: It was not mine
Here are the shots I was talking about ...partly sponsored by Bill Claff
All were shot with my old AF 20-35 f/2.8 Nikkor
Freakin ISO 25600 f/11 1/125 handheld: 100% crop no sharpening or curves applied.
Same shot full frame resized to upload and sharpened.
ISO 3200 f/22 1/500 handheld: 100% crop no sharpening or curves added
Same shot resized to upload, curves and sharpening applied - Now this is darn impressive for ISO 3200! As good as or slightly better than D200's ISO 400!!!
My oldest lens is 20-35! that's the reason I wanted to check it with D700 for CA
CA is ever so slightly visible ... this is way better than D200 with the same lens.
Still the lack of ISO 100 is a bit of a concern ....!But I have that bad feeling in my stomach that I might find it very difficult to 'discipline' myself

My D300 is only one month old....may be we don't have to justify after all.
Hope my better half will not see this post!!!
