    So this isn't going to be the 5DMKII competitor? Sorry, I don't know the Nikon series at all.

    I thought this is more of a competitor to the 1ds mk iii (and upcoming iv)

    It very well could be, I just figured Nikon would come out with something to compete with the 5DMKII as soon as possible, and it seems about the right time.

    the nikon is priced way to high to compete with the 5D II. I imagine a redesigned D700 with this new sensor will appear at some point to be the direct competition.

    Yeah, this is the "competitor" for the 1D, it would seem, but I'm not impressed at all by the amount of noise it has. And I dunno about Nikon coming out with something else in a hurry to compete with the 5DMKII, the D700 holds its own even against the new 5D, IMO.

    yea i think the d700 and the 5dmkii are directly comparable to each other, considering they came out at about the same time :dunno:

    yeah, should fill the studio niche well. $ maybe a touch high, but right in line with 1dsm3 pricing so why not.

    list price & street price are two diff things, remember. 1dsm3 has dropped to 6500 ish, this will too to keep pace.

    Looks pretty shitty. I dont expect new cameras to have noise at 800 ISO.

    It's flipping 24.5 MP. It's targeted at studio shooters. They don't shoot at high ISO. Everyone knew the D3X wouldn't compete on noise with the D3 and D700.

    I understand it's a "studio" camera and the target owner of this camera won't use the high iso's...

    But it seems odd to me that all of Nikon's recent bodies have really shined at high iso's and this one does not appear to. Also, I don't think 24.5MP is an excuse, the 5D2 is putting out very impressive high iso results with high MP's.

    It actually makes perfect sense if you consider the target audience. Nikon has always had high-speed PJ cameras and studio cameras. This is no different. There's no way you can double the resolution in the same sensor area and keep the same sensitivity.

    The 5D2 is 21MP and does, IMO, just as well as the D3/D700 ....

    Double it? When did they double it?

    Although, with your definition of "double", Canon "doubled" the resolution in the same sensor area from 5D->5D2 and not only increased the sensitivity, but made it a lot cleaner too.

    I would amend your last statement to maybe say that there is no way Nikon, (or is it Sony making the sensors?) can double the resolution in the same sensor area and keep the same sensitivity.

    I can never tell that much from shots like that.

    Indoor incandescent lighting always produces shitty shots IMO, plus both look slightly underexposed.

    doubled the resolution of the d700.

    but your point is still valid.
