Thanks for your reply, from someone who actualy uses the camera it is great to hear real practical use of FPS, not just as a look my camera has.... ithing...

Yes, its a little like "my camera has 1/16,000 sec". Well I could use 1/8,000, but 1/16,000 would mean boosting the ISO too much for my liking. I know I can hit ISO 400 at 1/8,000, but at 1/16,000 that means hitting ISO 800 on a bright sunny day. Not something I would want to do on APS-C or a 1" sensor and the need to crop. With a FF sensor, no problem if you don't need to crop too much.

All the best and specs can be interesting sometimes in what the camera has and what you can actually use


You got it backwards. 1/16,000 is useful when you want to use fast lenses in broad daylight. You can even shoot the 32mm f1.2 at f1.2 on the Nikon 1s, without having to stop down or without having to use an ND filter. IMO that is a really nice feature.
