    Who needs light anymore?

    "You also have the option of rating the sensor at (ISO) 12,800 (Hi1), and 25,600 (Hi2),"

    "This image, shot with a Nikon D700 at the bottom of a coal-mine, hand-held at 1/2000 of a second..." :lmao:

    I'm seriously in lust here! I love my D300 and can only imagine what the D700 would be like!

    And in very bright light or high-powered strobes, you have the option of rating the ISO at....oh wait...what were those "lo" modes again? :meh:

    And for $3K you get a whopping 13MP!

    I believe it gets down to ISO 50.

    I'm not 100% sure here, 'cause you're not always that tough to read, but you seem to be raining on the D700 parade.

    There's not a great reason to do so, but do what you will.

    Ah, I see. Thanks for the correction.

    Still low enough of an ISO though, Alpha.

    Suppose I am raining on it a bit. I demo'd the D700 last week and it was nice, if unimpressive compared to the hype, and IMO not worth nearly double the price of the D300. I still think $3k is a ridiculous amount to pay for 13MP.

    I love Nikon, but they have a problem I don't like. It's about ISO. The smaller value of 100. I wish to be 50. For those who use Nikon D700 I have one question:
    On my D70s, I have burned area where should be white (for ex. where is snow in a sunny day). It's still this problem on D700 or D300?

    You might consider using ND filters.
