    The new D3s appears to have about a two-stop HIGH ISO advantage over the original D3 of 2007. And the new 70-200 V-II second generation lens has *notably* better performance than the original 70-200 VR of 2003.

    Look here for examples of how well the Nikon D3s can do under odd, low-light conditions
    Rob Galbraith DPI: A first look at Nikon D3S high ISO image quality, plus the new 70-200mm f/2.8

    and look here to see side-by-side High ISO comparisons of the original D3 and original 70-200 shot against the D3s and the new 70-200 VR-II lens. it is quite clear that in the approximately six years between lens designs, NIkon has found a way to add more ED glass elements, and has invented Nano-crystal coating,which is a huge advance in multi-coating.

    Yeah, 2 stop sound a bit rediculous but maybe that because we're didn't expect it either lol. I wonder how the file improve at base ISO of 200, you don't always go 6400 ISO :) like the way Nikon like us to think. lol.

    Why not use your own eyes and look at the photos smart guy? You know, photos from somebody who actually HELD and actually SHOT the new camera AND the new lens and wrote, after his tests, "The D3S at ISO12800 is comparable to the D3 ISO3200 and the D3S at ISO25600 or HI 1 looks cleaner and more pleasant than the D3 at ISO6400. D3S users will effectively gain two additional stops of usable ISO performance. The result astounded me and dispelled my initial skepticism. ISO25600 or HI 1 on a D3S is the highest I would go for my wedding work."

    Or maybe stop by the links provided and see what Rob Galbraith wrote:
    "The high ISO image quality improvements in the D3S are real, and they're substantial. Based on what we shot that evening it's safe to expect at least a one stop improvement, maybe more. In other words, overall image quality at ISO 6400 on the D3S is at least as good as ISO 3200 on the D3. And perhaps better, as you'll notice if you look at the photos we shot with both cameras at ISO 1600 and up."

    So, we have three established professionals, two of whom claim a two-stop improvement in high ISO performance, and another who claims "at least a stop improvement, maybe more". And we have MrLogic disputing the claims all three people publicly made based on...nothing...

    I saw all the sample images already. I think Galbraith is right. Sorry if I wasn't clear -- I only question the first part of the above quote by mr. Peterson:

    "ISO 1600 is like ISO 400 or less on the D3."

    Do you have evidence that supports this particular quote? If so, please provide it.

    Thanks in advance.
