So far, pushing left focus trials, no issue shooting at 3200 f/2.8/5.6/8 on the 24-70 f/2.8, in late at night single source incandescent low lit room, everyone else is asleep mode.

Late release, three software versions indicated in the menu.

If the sensor is spotted, I'll find out tomorrow, and take it to Nikon for a rinse next week.

Video, I'm impressed, cleaner than the D7000 pair we own.

Shooting a concert tomorrow in a club up in Santa Barbara, don't have the HyperDeck2 rig as yet, so h.264 will have to do for this pass.

Nice camera, noisy shutter though, like the D3S.

Files are large, opened up fine using the launch button in CNX2.

Thanks to everyone here who has guided the prestage issues, and solutions.
