All this talk about D800 MegP, how about IQ?

18, 24, 36 MegP??? I shoot to make me happy, this year around 30K shoots (of which 29K were deleted)

I loose 30 to 50 shoots a year due do the "poor" MegP on my D700. BUT, I have lost or not taken 1,000s due to dynamic range, Yes I shoot HDR, but there are times that does not work and you can not always be there to take the photo in the "golden hour"

So for me, give me more IQ and DR. I do not need more MP.

Thanks, I feel much better now.


I can take 7 photos that are 14 Meg each and run them in HDRsoft program and my iMac does a great job on the 100 Meg photo. This 3.6 GHz i5 dual core is not limited
on big files

If you have low standards, you can take a look:
