Re: Camera = evolutionary . . . Images = revolutionary?

To me, the more pictures you can get compared to older equipment is what makes a camera revolutionary. Regardless if it shares components or design philosophies with previous models.

That happened to me when I switched from a Pentax K5 (in many ways similar to a D7xxx) to a D3300, the latter a bare basic camera, costing me new roughly a fifth what I paid for the K5 (that was bought soon after their release on the market).

While it doesn't have the thrills (the K5 is jam-packed with them), it gives me sharp shots, correctly focused, again and a gain. To my great surprise!

The Pentax gave me somewhere like 5-10% sharp shots, under standard circumstances, while the D3300 gives me around 90-95% on a good day, and 40% on a really bad day.

A single bird deep inside a big bush, no problem, with the D3300, while the K5 was best thanks to its easy to understand menu system, with fairly short focal lengths.
