Re: Why so concerned about high ISO?

Some of us are sports shooter. Even the D700 isn't good enough. It's acceptable at ISO 3200, but some high school stadiums lights are very bad. To freeze a shot at f2.8, I need ISO 6400 which the D3s is quite capable of providing with good dynamic range. I'm moving to D3s, the ultimate shooting machine. Do I need 36 mp ind D800 to 100% crop that special catch? No. Higher burst rate in the D3s is more important to me than more pixels.
