ahhrrr, Well that was quite obvious, but not really the point.

I for one don't carry a sturdy tripod with me all the time, but I do appreciate what a tripod can do for you. Even a P&S on a tripod at ISO 100 can give reasonable results. You'd expect a much more expensive camera to have as little noise as possible to allow you to handhold for some shots at 1600 ISO.

I'm looking to upgrade from a D90. After weighing up the pros and cons of D7100 vs. D600. I will probably still buy the D7100 (despite this somewhat disappointing noise performance) and also invest in some better glass to win back a stop.

a different thought while I'm here,... one advantage I hear in this forum, of having so many pixels is that you can crop a smaller part out of the image (if necessary) and still have lots of resolution, but then the noise will really hit you at high ISO.

Photography remains a game of compromises!
