I have read, with great interest, the various posts regarding pixels and reach. I have also read some interesting articles and reviews that have commented on the fact that some manufacturers of cameras and sensors are putting more megapixels onto smaller sensors with "flat" results. The current answer to this problem is to put larger pixels onto those smaller sensors. In other words, instead of putting 14 megapixels onto a DX sensor, put 10 large megapixels onto that same sensor. Canon and Sony, manufacturers of this new breed of high end point and shoots, are taking this position. So, my query is, did Nikon put larger pixels onto the D700 sensor than they did on the D300 sensor. If so, then all of the threads regarding "reach" are really inaccurate and invalid. Does anyone know the answer?
