Slapbass: Waiting for the D300 successor...here you are! ;)
the buffer capacity is 12 to 14 in the 1.3 crop mode which features the 7fps. so thats about 2sec shooting at full speed. not sooo bad for many uses?
a question to the dpr team on testing: from the settings I gather that aperture is set to F11, but is shutter speed not set equal? we know that iso values can deviate quite a lot from their "true iso". so e.g. the d800 iso 12800 might rather be iso 10000, and the differential might be compensated by different shutter speeds. thanks for elucidating me
I am sure that this is a great camera, however I am suprised by your comparison tool. If you compare the sony to the new nikon d3200, the nikon d3200 gets a higher score for image quality raw, but a lower one for image quality jpeg whereas dpr says in the review that the jpeg renderings yields mushy detail. and the sony gets a higher score for iso low light performance, whereas the dxo mark score reveals that the nikon is much better (not surprising, as the translucent mirror takes away light). so I think that this review is not altogether balanced.
