Here one could see the real advantage of Nikon's FX system. Low pixel density, perfect handling of noise by the inner soft make iso rates and diaphragms possible in a dark environement that allow a field of deepth and overall long distance sharpness. One could do this shot with an open diaphragm of 2.8 and get a nice blured deepth of the picture. All is a question of taste in this matter. In old "film" times, everyone was dreaming of this kind of overall sharpness in such conditions while today it seems that DOF is the most important people look for. Is it a question of trends only. Main thing is that with Nikon's new FX system you can get both. Thanks for sharing this gallery Pierre.
