I'm in agreement with Dan about the camera. I also had a chance to shoot a show at 800ASA, using the lovely new 300mm f2.8 VR. I've uploaded a full size image straight from the camera at:
It was shot on jpeg fine, tungsten wb and manual exposure. I was a bit stunned at the amount of noise at 800asa, as I was hoping they would've sorted out the noise issue. Having said that, it is better than the D2H noise wise. Unfortunatley I can't remember if I had the noise reduction on or off.

I just got my D2X having previously used a D1X for 3 years. This camera's color rendition is excellent, lots of resolution, and battery life that the D1X never had. Seems autofocus is improved as well, and the speed of operation is amazing. On the down side, ISO 3200 is in my opinion not useable, while ISO 1600 in a pinch could play. The D1X was quieter, but if you stay ISO 400 or lower (virtually no difference between 100 to 200) it can't be beat. 800 starts showing noise, but not enough to trouble you. I was entertaining Canon but waited to see just how good or bad this D2X was up close. I had the chance to return it if I didn't like what I saw, but it will become my mainstay! nothings perfect, but where it counts, this camera sets a new bar.
