Hi Greg! hi everybody!
First of all thank you very much Greg, I really enjoy watching your videos!

There's a question I really can't find an answer for.

I upgraded my Nikon D200 to D700, and now magically my 1600 ISO pictures look just gorgeous compared to the photo taken with the Nikon D200 as expected.

The reason is: newer technology, bigger sensor size (mostly).

So we all know that when you move from DX to FX we gain better ISO handling because of larger sensor size.

So WHY this doesn't apply to medium format camera?

why a 40MPx medium format camera at 6400 ISO produces worse images than a Nikon D800 at the same ISO, following the sensor size rule It shouldn't be so.

Thank you if you can clarify this.

Sensor size does matter in dx and fx with regards to iso but from d200 to d700 you are also talking about the difference of 4 or 5 years in sensor technology. As for medium format most of them perform on the lower end much better and are not optimized for high iso like DSLR bodies.

Interesting, never knew that.

Have you ever considered going medium format Greg or do you prefer the high ISO capabilities a full frame SLR offers?

I'm pretty happy with my Nikon DSLRs, if I needed it for a job I would probably rent one before I purchased one.
