Nice report. Thanks, however . . .

Nice report. Thanks, however . . .you really DO need to get a better rez chart. :^) (I made one that is ISO 12233 2' x 3' and i don't even do reviews seriously - or even semi seriously. Pretty easy to do.)

That said, I pretty much agree with all that you have said. I tested my pro friends D3x against my D700 and came to the same conclusions. A lot of pixels for a lot of bucks - too many bucks.

Diffraction limiting due to airy circles and pixel size seems to set diffraction limiting at f8. I certainly wouldn't go above f11 . . as you stated. This would seem to limit the camera somewhat for landscapes. Perhaps with your 24mm PC it simply won't make a difference. Meanwhile I await the D700x around $3,600 - or less. I can only hope.

Thanks again for affirming what many of us suspected. A GREAT camera, but . . .
