Been thinking about this. Most of the enthusiastic D800 people point out the increased resolution of the D800 as the differentiator with the D700. Makes sense. Seen lots of comparison about it. But we've also been hearing that it is better at dynamic range. I've seen pictures that say, "Marvel at this dynamic range!" but those are scalars. Meaning they exist independently of comparisons.

So, what I'm curious to see -- if anyone out there has a D700 and D800 handy -- is a comparison shot. Take the same picture of the same thing in the same manner with the D700 and D800, process it the same way, and resize to the same output size, and post them. In this case I'm pretty unconcerned with noise so the binning issue is not what's interesting to me. I'm interested in seeing if I personally can *see* the dynamic range difference without it being pointed out to me.

Many thanks to whomever wishes to help out on this. Seeing numbers in Bill's chart or DXO really doesn't mean anything to me in isolation. I want to see if I can actually *see* a difference.
