Hi Joseph. Your right. Micro Four Thirds will not compare to the D800's output. The trick for me would be to see if the majority of my customers could live with Micro Four Thirds.

There is something indefinable about the output from the full frame sensors. I was always pretty amazed at what the D700 could spit out.

But as time goes by, the bar gets raised each generation and, while the FF sensors continue to delight and amaze, the difference at previous nosebleed ISOs like 3200 is less and less.

To that end, when I decided to make a wholesale switch, the first thing I did was to process some RAW images from a bunch of cams and see how they fared at 3200 ISO, for example.

The results were really surprising to me ...

And a note to those whose immediate reaction might be to savage my methods and results, let's keep it simple and consider me savaged
