Do NEF files process neatly with non-Nikon raw converters, namely Camera Raw? I keep hearing about problems here ...
Philip wrote:David, you wrote in the Feb/March editon of F2, when comparing the Oly E-3 and Nkn D3, that what you would like would be a D3 sensor in a D300 body. Nkn have now delivered exactly this in the D700 (we assume), and I am very tempted to switch after 25 years of Minolta use (despite a huge investment in glass), so am really looking forward to yor insights. What are your initial thoughts on quality - image and build, and have Nkn crippled the high ISO function to protect D3 sales?
David Kilpatrick wrote:The D3 has been out of stock and over-ordered for months. The D700, if it doesn't go 'unobtainable' within days of launch, will actually fill a gap. There are not enough D3s to go round.
Just wait for the A900. It will cost as much as a D700, guaranteed - Sony is not going to be cutting prices for a sensor like that. You are looking at some amazingly good, and expensive, Sony DSLR gear to be seen at photokina. And they will not be able to meet the demand, the A900 will be back ordered for six months after it actually reaches the shops.
