Looking at both threads: Eno and rhlpetrus there appears to be very little difference in colour between the D80, D300, and D7000.

The biggest difference is the larger tonal and dynamic range of the D7000 which I think sees things much closer to the way our eyes see them. We are used to seeing a more compressed tonal range in photographs which ironically can make the D7000 images seem slightly less contrasty. So they look better and worse at the same time. Something that has been confusing me. In fact we are seeing images that are so real they make us question what actually is a creative image.

Thanks to both for hard work in doing these tests.


Check below for a more dramatic example of better DR, tone and color gradation on the part of D7k.
