Re: skipped the D4
In reply to John, May 30, 2012

I think the D4 is a significant step backwards from the D3s as far as noise.

I almost bit on a D4 months ago...then after seeing comparison images to the D3s, purchased it instead. The D3s still holds a slightly (albeit small) high ISO edge over the D4 at least in the comparisons I've seen.

Regarding air shows, I used to shoot a 200-400/VR at air shows, but can say confidently now that my 400/2.8 VR outperforms it particularly with cropping. If you can get as close as Glenn does, then the 200-400/VR really shines.
