Pete has probably "acquired" them and gone "missing" for the day .... see his 365 blog later this evening perhaps Wink

To make, when released, the D800 with a 36 Megapixel sensor look even more impressive Wink

First question - how good is the new system compared to say a D200 for image quality and noise?
The D200 remains good enough for many purposes, and many DSLR photographers continue to get good results from "lesser" bodies like a D70.
Second question - how does it compare to the P7100 you just reviewed? Presumably the VI in particular is better to justify the extra price.

Yes, the 1 Series has better image quality particularly at higher ISO settings. (As you'd expect from the larger sensor)

How does it compare to, say, a D300s for image quality?

For example, if you take a picture (at an ISO that the Nikon 1 can handle - we know that the 300s will be better at high ISO) using the same AOV lens (and at an aperture that gives the same DOF) and then print the picture at A3 - can anyone tell the difference? And if so, how small do you have to print before they're indistinguishable - I'd reckon at A4 they'd probably be hard to tell apart.

There's been a lot of knocking forum comment (on various forums) about the Nikon 1 sensor being too small for it to be a serious camera. It would be interesting if it can match the APS-C sensor cameras for most practical purposes, except high ISO.
