Lol, she is cute! Nice detail on her face especially considering she is all black.

As mentioned ... nice exposure here considering the all black cat and the beige carpet. Nice shots all round. Not nearly as boring as that other shot of yours M :laugh:

Thanks guys. Shot at ISO 3200...I keep harping on the ISO stuff cos I'm so not used to good results in that domain :)

Keep harping ... it keeps me focused on getting Canon 5D MkII ;)

Very well done Maw - I favour shot 1 as the cat's face is lit better.

Just curious - what's the noise like at 3200 in the raw file at 100%?

What noise? :D It's very, very minimal. The noise there is, you have to go looking for and when you find it, it's very filmic, more like grain. No banding whatsoever. The E-3 noise was in the color info showing up as little green and red dots usually c/w banding.

Here's a very close crop of an area between the cat and the carpet, though it is now a jpeg it shows what I think is really acceptable noise levels at this ISO.

Thanks for the detail shot Maw!!!!!

I used a D700 for a week and loved it, but now you've had yours a short while. Anything you hate or dislike about the camera?

Nothing to dislike or hate at my end. My only grief is the weight of the system with th70-300mm mounted. I'm not one to drape the camera around my neck, preferring to wrap the strap around my wrist and hold the camera by the side grip. After a couple of hours walking around in the bush, my arm and wrist are aching. I have to drape it around my neck some of the time now. I'm really looking forward to the day I can afford some pro glass, but I knew that would be a while going in. It's certainly the camera I really wanted but couldn't afford last year when I bought the E-3. Glad I made the switch:)

That's funny - the weight was one of the first things I noticed about that camera as well. Maybe do some wrist curls or other activities to strengthen your forearm.:D
