    Thanks just snapshots in the morning to see the difference since I have both cam on hand.
    Might be interesting to include the D200 as will but wonder if there will be any significant.

    When Sony can ramp up production of FF sensors to a significant level, DX and AP-S sensors will no longer be a selling point but an embaressment! Don't under estimate what Sony can do - and we will have Sony to Thank for a couple of years from now when we are all shooting full frame!

    I'm looking forward to that day ... it'll bring the price of 35mm fx to a more affordable level.

    Hi, any idea how is the dynamic range as compared to the fuji S5PRO?

    Thanks

    I've not tried the S5 Pro. BTW, that's also not a FF DSLR.

    Hi, actually what I mean is that is the dynamic range of FF comparable than the S5PRO's impressive dynamic range. Moreover it is an 1.5x sensor.

    Well then that i can't comment as i have not personally shot on a S5 Pro.

    the only real advantage for me would the wide angle perspective.

    cant wait for the day where i can shoot at 14mm on a 5D for landscape

    ISO wise...... i kinda prefer fast lenses but then again, DOF might be a problem

    and i agree with many here, FF would the way of the future

    Not sure whether can someone advise me?

    My 5D, bought already last week, but the ISO noise level at low light still like on a 1.6 fov body? Is it due to really low light?

    Regards,
    Jack

    Which 1.6x crop body are you comparing it to?

    Don't forget that the Nikon D1 was introduced less than 10 years ago... So we've gone from 2.7 MP DX to 12MP FX in such a short time and you can be sure that the 20+MP is ready to be announced...

    Less than 10 years in the electronic world is almost like saying less than 30 years ago. LOL!

    Bigger Sensors allow bigger Pixels. Hence:

    1. Bigger Pixels simply means better picture quality
    2. Bigger light capturing area
    3. Wider dynamic range
    4. Greater Signal-Noise ratio
    5. Higher top ISO speed (guess it mean higher usable ISO)
    6. Lesser blowout due to over saturation

    Maybe some pros would like to elaborate

    What you state above is true when you compare current Full Frame to Current Crop Sensor. But theres actually quite a few other thing you have to keep in mind. Lens quality is one of them. Doesnt mean you use a full frame you can out match a crop sensor automatically. Its quite technical though. Put it simple is bigger sensor area, with the same mega pixel, means each pixel gets more light to work on. More light to work on = higher accuracy and more information to derive from a single pixel. You must however compare age of technology. Example a 5d compared to 40d is much smaller in difference then say a 300d to 5d.

    I ain't no pro but what the heck...

    1. Bigger Pixels simply means better picture quality - Show me the pictures
    2. Bigger light capturing area - Can't argue on that
    3. Wider dynamic range - Really? How wide? How come S3pro smaller sensor can capture more dynamic range?
    4. Greater Signal-Noise ratio - Depends on the image processor actually
    5. Higher top ISO speed (guess it mean higher usable ISO) - See above.
    6. Lesser blowout due to over saturation - No idea what the hell they are talking about

    On your first sentence, then how come now so many new compacts have such large pixel count? Up to 14MP and their sensors are so much smaller than a DSLR's.

    Guess u misunderstood what they meant, pixel count and pixel size is 2 different thing all together...

    Pixel count simply mean how many MPs...
    Pixel Size is referring to how big each pixels are..

    Not necessary larger though.

    So now you know why "bigger is better" when it comes to image quality and digital sensors. Of course bigger is also more expensive, and bigger means bigger (hence heavier and more expensive) lenses, so you can see why many digital cameras stick with small sensors. It's cost, not quality that keeps sensors small.
