a quote from Veri
Thanks a lot Guy, that is pretty impressive indeed for a ISO 1600 20 MP image - one more question, besides the specs which I know, how fast does the IQ180 feel in Sensor Plus mode as far as shot-to-shot times go? I mean, do you ever feel like it leaves you waiting? I shoot a lot of concerts in very low light, and while ISO 1600 would do the trick (barely with f4 lenses, better with f2.8 glass) I also need some shot-to-shot speed & fast enough AF (but this I can live without, I often use old Nikkors in MF without any problem)... thanks!

No not in sensor plus feels pretty good on speed, go as fast as the DF goes. The Df is very good with AF in low light. The 150 D 2.8 would be a excellent lens and don't forget the 300 4.5 which is very very good wide open. I'm actually surprised by the 210 F4 wide open. Reason I am keeping Daves demo unit is I got a nice shot wide open with it. I need to test it more but for 500/600 bucks I'm impressed. Honestly if i push myself to the 160 the sony's are toast. 15 mpx sensor plus would be perfect for me and the 180 with 20mpx looks to be a bonus.
In all honesty the IQ 180 is amazing but maybe too much for me with my work and setup. But it is the better deal for the P65+ users to upgrade and frankly they should go straight for it. Silly not too. I'm just trying to get to the 160 which i maybe able to pull off with a miracle. LOL
It is really what I want and completely solves my issues. I may have to wait a bit but that is okay. One time for me to be smart and wait it out. Can't believe the gear slut just said that. Need more espresso
