D300 v. D700 Dynamic Range
Oct 16, 2008

I am comparing the dynamic range of the two cameras and it looks like the D300 has a higher dynamic range than the D700. See dpreview charts:

What gives? I thought the full frame sensor would out preform the APS size sensor. Or, am I miss reading the data. If I don't need the high ISO, do I need a full-frame camera and all the lenses. I'm quite happy with my D300.
