Why would a Pro buy Dx ?The huge advantage of Dx is cost, not only in bodies but also lensesbut the advantage in lenses is limited due the small number of "pro" DX lensesA pro staring from scratch today is going to have spend a lot more on lenses than on a bodyso the % saving is quite small
"** Cool to note that using the same lens the DOF of DX is actually shallower ! Tick 1 for DX !!"If you check DX DoF at 50mm f2.8, you have to compare it to FX 75mm f2.8 as otherwise it isn't comparing eggs with eggs.
That's like saying the D300s sensor should have matched the D3s, or it wouldn't sell. I just fail to see the logic in your argument.
Agreed, but logic, and a basic understanding of marketing, seems to be amiss in this thread.
I Msmoto and I think it will be possible to continue improving sensor technology such that acceptable 12,800 ISO can be obtained from a DX sensor: .
Most pros don't magically start off with all pro gear, they work their way up to it.
To insist Nikon won't run the ISO up to 12,800 before going to Hi 1 is based upon what logic? If they can, why won't they? What logic or marketing will keep them from doing so? You must just think it is physically impossible to get acceptable 12,800 ISO out of a DX sensor so Nikon will always label 12,800 as Hi 1. Msmoto and I think it will be possible to continue improving sensor technology such that acceptable 12,800 ISO can be obtained from a DX sesnor: if not this year in the D400 than some time in the future. You are the ones who are being too rigid in my opinion.
Umm, yeah... I don't even need to say anything in reply to that, it speaks for itself. )
I don't think msmoto and I are either delusional or crazy. If the D400 cannot be given better high ISO than the D5100's 6,400, Nikon won't do it. If it can be done, Nikon will do it.
Let's all face some facts...we are all guessing. My guesses are highly optimistic....and the long delay in introducing a D300s replacement suggests to me Nikon may have something advanced to be introduced. Incidentally, the word delusional has been misused. The more appropriate term may be wishful thinking.
