D3 with DX Lenses vs D300

Discussion in 'Nikon DX DSLR Forum' started by Snapshooter, Jul 7, 2008.

  1. I courious to know if anyone has compared image quality between a D3 with DX lenses vs a D300 with the same lens?
  2. I think there's been quite a lot written about this.

    In brief, in DX mode the D3 retains its 1.5-2 stop ISO advantage over the D300, but with 5.1 MP instead of 12.3 MP.

    Does that help?:smile:

    So the same field of view with less than half the mp's...?
  4. With the larger pixel size of the D3, I was wondering if the final images would be comparable?

    A clean 5.1 MP image will still print a great 8x10 image.
