Ok, so for WEEKS now, we've been hearing about the D800 and it's ISO performance. We've seen tests, we've seen lab reports. Is it as good as the D700/D3. Would it fall apart at high ISO. Could a 36MP sensore REALLY deliver the goods?

Well tonight, my D800 was tasked with it's first night softball game. I was able to use the camera in the late afternoon at ISO 100, and ended up at ISO 3200. How did it do? In a word, "Awesome".

So here I present to you, the D800 at ISO 3200. Not in a lab, but affixed to a 300mm/2.8, under mixed daylight/sodium vapor stadium lights. This was pulled into LR, and converted to JPG. There is ZERO noise reduction, color, or anything else. This was shot RAW.

Comments welcome.

(And if anyone STILL thinks this camera can't deliver the goods, you need your head examined.)
