FYI: http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/eng/Image-Quality-Database/Compare-cameras/(appareil1)/209|0/(appareil2)/262|0/(appareil3)/265|0/(onglet)/0/(brand)/Nikon/(brand2)/Nikon/(brand3)/Sony

-> The D700 has the same pixel size as the D3(8.4µm)... which are larger than the D3x (i.e. same Full-Frame sized sensor but 12Mpixels vs 24Mpixels)
The D3x has the same pixel pitch as the A900 (around 5.9µm), but the D300 is slightly smaller (5.4µm)
