Have you considered the possibility that it is, in fact, all about the megapixels?

How times have changed...DPR used to be a refuge away from the megapixel-race..we all used to sing from the same hymn-sheet, wishing manufacturers would stop the pixel-increases and focus on IQ & FPS.

Now? Now everyone loves the megapixel race (and everyone loves camera phones).

Times have changed indeed...

In know it's convenient for you to ignore them, but there they are.

D700 is a 5-year old sensor. And I already agreed that the D600's 5% high-ISO improvement over the D800 isn't significant.

And so a whole load of your argument disappears through the window.

Jesus wept, bob.

I wrote that 3 pages ago. Keep up

I'm not on a 'megapixel race' crusade. There is no megapixel race.

Right on.

The 'easier/faster photoshopping' bit is a red herring anyway, a lot of photoshopping operations become easier with more pixels, sometimes even unnecessary.

Now you're just being silly.

I vote that the girlfriend makes a DPR account and joins this thread before it hits the 150.
