  • The D800's mirror slap is waaay less than the D3's was. I was always fighting mirror shake with in the studio with my D3.

  • OLPF's don't actually remove information (light, in this case), they spread it out slightly so its less likely to create moire. That's why the inverse method worked - it could refocus the light...

  • Highlights that are close to clipping are displayed with a zebra stripe pattern over them. Makes it easy to discern what is merely bright, and what is actually clipping.

  • To keep the optical path the same length as the D800 (which had a low pass filter), the D800E needed to use a somewhat complicated system: ...

  • CCD has previous had the quality advantage and more dynamic range. In MF digital quality was always consideration #1 above all else. Recent generation CMOS narrowed this gap, but there was still...

  • The 055 series supports a little over 17 lbs. It's pretty much the 190 series beefed up a little, and thus a little more expensive. I wonder if this line is also being updated? I'm in the market...
