From my experience with light collection methods, these micro lenses, can act as a filter, blocking out light from wide angles, and bending some good rays into bad angle rays. (No free lunch). The other factor is that the incident light rays will change according to scene and lens configuration. This may explain why the D300 can produce noise in skies, or any scene that has lots of scattered rays, that would register on film or on CCD, with no problems.


Sorry, but the complaints about noise in skies on the D300 is old and tired. Make better use of the camera (and in some cases use a better raw converter) and that issue disappears. Sometimes you have to adapt to a new tool and then you find how much the new tool can be.

Perhaps I used a bad example, and your point about adapting is valid.

The point I am making is that micro lenses have a potential to filter light depending on their orientation to the incoming light, which varies with different lenses. I believe that some camera manufacturers are now orientating each micro lens differently to account for this.
