Since I bought mine and combined it with top quality glass my imagery (if that is a word) has gone ahead in leaps and bounds, a 203 meg file to work with, the detail is sometimes frightening when you look at it @ 100% in photoshop. Shadow and highlight detail before you even put the image through ACR.


I am in love

I used a D300 for many years and after my girlfriend bought a D3200 with double the megapixels and looked at her pictures, I realized what a difference it makes to have that more resolution specially with stock photography. After reading this article, the D800 might be my next upgrade if Nikon won't release a "D400"...

"Everyone knows the bigger images bring in more royalties than the smaller ones."

I've seen little evidence to support that! What do you base that statement on? My experience is that most credit buyers buy smaller sizes (for blogs?) and most subscription buyers get the maximum size. My feeling is that the larger buyer who do care about size, therefore, pay nothing extra for it!

That said, there is the chance that someone buys a larger file over another smaller one for the resolution alone, but composition, lighting and search placement would factor a lot higher, in my opinion...

Plus, you have to factor in the time lost working with larger files right from the download off the camera, to working in LR/PS, and then uploading to agencies.
