That means for any shutter speed / aperture dialed on an D800 the results at ISO 1600 setting in a decent raw converter are better compared to any higher ISO setting because noise is the same but highlights are less clipped. If you need shutter speed like at ISO 6400 set ISO 1600 and dial -2EV for the shutter speed. Now you have an option to use a curve in raw conversion to compress highlights instead of just clipping them in the camera.

Excellent   An explanation suitable for a simple non technical sort such as myself.

Sir, would you be able to comment on equivalent numbers as they regard, perhaps, the D3, D3s, D3x, or D700 cameras?  Thanx.

One day long ago, a sorcerer and a warrior did battle, as such things were commonplace in that age. Sometimes the sorcerer won, and the sum value of human abilities was improved some trifling amount. Sometimes the warrior won, and again the human race improved by some insignificant amount, for a sorcerer who can't defeat one miserable warrior is a poor sorcerer indeed.
