It'seems that we can't live without post processing.

Before shooting i normally think, evaluate the light, the scene, i'm not a casual shooter.
Shooting in raw allows me to store all the best of a photo in a file.
So if a print is needed i can use the best of it

The first sample i posted in this thread was just for testing the basic features of the camera, nothing else.

If someone would like to see what does it means for me photography without post processing consider that at the moment i mantain almost 100 sites that i've built, and the images are a relevant part of them. You can see some example here or or

I don't need to compare the images of my D90 with those of the new camera.
I know very well the limits of the first. I just expected 2 stop of better high iso performance after 5 years of innovation. Don't ask for a 3200 or 6400 clean results, just 1600.

Dpreview has now posted the samples of the D7100 that confirms exactly all the serious doubts i've on the high iso performance of this camera.

I've read some very interesting post in this thread and would like you to consider this picture
that's a crop of a photo of my son at 1250 iso with the nikon 300/4 AF-S, very far from the perfect samples of this forum and much more similar tho worst samples of DPreview gallery.

Thank you.
