This is what ISO6400 looks like on a Nikon D700. Absolutely amazing. Digital noise is hardly noticeable. D3 sensor on a smaller body at 2/3 the price....
Got this mid-range walkabout lens recently. Seems to be much sharper at all focal lengths as compared to the Nikkor 18-200 VR. It doesn't do any zoom creep either. A definite plus point. Pity it's a DX lens though.
