Nikon D300 (DX) Vs Nikon D700 (FX) High ISO Performance

Like this post? Please help us share it

Despite the superior high ISO performance of the D300, there is still quite a gap between FX and DX in this area (high ISO performance), in particular @ ISO 3200+.

I am very sensitive to image noise, even images taken @ ISO 1600 with the D300 can be a worrying. However, I have no problem shooting @ ISO 6400 with my D700.
