All,

What is the max size of D700 print out that will still show the same quality as that of D600, assuming the same dpi is used in printing the photo.

To answer your question directly,

for desktop viewing, printed at 286 ppi

the d700 can print 14.8 x 9.9

the d600 can print 21 x 14

for print to be hung on the wall and printed at 143 ppi

the d700 can print 29.7 x 19.8

the d600 can print 42 x 28

that should help guide you as to which camera fits your needs.

hope that helps, sorry for the long winded explanation,

and before any flame-throwers start up, I know there are those of you who print posters from a D70, but I'm just trying to illustrate a framework for making a decision.

1. D800 is the first camera with resolution so high that it simply does not matter.
2. Most people who do not own/shoot d800 misunderstand it. Color depth and accuracy in addition to resolution is what makes d800 great. Resolution alone is over rated.
