Yes, the quality difference between the lenses will increase, but both will do better than they do on a lower resolution camera. As always, the pixellophobes are deploying a glass half empty argument. The fact that the poorer lenses don't get as much better as the better ones means you have to have the better ones, in their eyes.

Both clear and succinct, well put. I'll admit I personally have not thought about it precisely like that before.


Most prime lenses will give the D800s sensor a run for its money. As someone else pointed out its effectively two D7000 sensors side by side (in resolution anyway) and people don't get so stressed about needing the very best lenses for that camera.

Cheap zooms are the challenge, its good to see the Tamron 28-75 2.8 being mentioned a few times, though if the new 24-70 2.8 VC is as good I know what I'll be buying....
