I miss my D200

I will make a very accurate comparison this weekend

Just bought a D5100 sharing the D7K 16MP CMOS sensor. Trully hesitate about upgrading my D40X for a D200, but bought a D5100 instead.

First tests disqualify the D5100 for all its so-called "advantages". The sharpness simply isn't there, whole textures lack of detail vs the D40x, at the same ISO settings (800 to 3200), all noise filters OFF. I used manual settings with 4 different speeds, iso settings and flash, using the single focus point. Also, even if the D5100 colors looks a bit richer, skin looks like almond paste.

This is my second CMOS aps-c body with the canon T2i. Had the same issues with this camera, blaming the strong AA filter @ first.

Maybe the D300 or D700 share a different generation of CMOS sensor and don't suffer from those issues.
