ok..after I saw on the main page that the D600 had new studio test done..I thought Id see how the D700 stacks up against the new kids on the block in regards to High ISO

Is high ISO all you care about? How did you get brainwashed into thinking that high ISO was the most important factor in photography?..

so I downloaded the D600, D800 and D700 files at ISO 6400..then I down sampled the higher res files to match the D700 file..then saved the new files at the same Jpeg quality.

LMAO. You think a 900 x 600 JPEG is a good way to compare sensors?...

after all this I did a blind test to determine the one I liked best...Ill let you lot have a look...needless to say a 5 year old FX sensor still rocks at high ISO and we are all being brainwashed into needing high MP cameras and so called better ISO ..LMAO

Brainwashed? LMAO. Being able to produce a 20x30" print with the detail of a D700's 12x17" print is an excellent improvement in my book.

take a look and see what you reckon and to me the D700 files look great

The D700 produces excellent images, but that doesn't mean there haven't been significant improvements in sensors.

Here is one significant way the D800E sensor has improved over the D700:

no but in this disscusion it about high ISO handling

.No I dont think they are 900x600 Jpegs 1600x1068 but even before the Jpg save in PS there was no differance before you hit the zoom button

and true more MP will give larger print sizes
