My D800 is an extraordinary camera which I enjoy tremendously. I have been pleased with many of my BIF photos, but above ISO 1600, I find there is apt to be more grain than I'd like. I'd like the ability to continue using a fast shutter as the light dims. Would a D4 or D4S be noticeably different? I know the numbers in the specs are much higher, but I am trying to find out if that actually translates into demonstrably better low light performance, something I'd actually see in a moderately cropped 17x22 print. Would focus acquisition and tracking be improved? Faster frames per second would be nice, although not a compelling reason to spend all that money. But improved focusing and low light abilities, and the huge buffer... Those might be things to consider. Thanks for your thoughts.
