Thanks for the review

That's pretty much in agreement with what I have seen so far but I will personnally stick to max ISO800.

A few ideas for future upgrades to the review:

  • a comparison of raw converters, I feel that they make more of a difference than they did with previous DSLRs I have worked with,

  • some comments on the importance of accurate focusing (sorry if there are some that I missed). I have found that it is almost impossible to critically focus a MF lens without using live view,

  • A careful analysis of highlight clipping, probably to be within your DR chapter, but I am sure you were already planning to do this. I see less highlight recovery capability with most raw converters than I did with the D3. Exposure is therefore a lot more tricky, it has to be perfect while the D3 was more tolerant.

Cheers,
Bernard
