comment The future of AutoFocus
@TaylorHuston - ... D600 ... worms ...: Maybe. A DX lens on a D600 will give you a 10.5 megapixel DX crop and allow you to use existing lense. AND all the old Nikon lense from the depths of time will be usable.

comment How to make the faces clear and bright in dim light photography?
Higher low noise high ISO performance the better. See DxO ISO-focused Sensor page - start at top and work down. Over 1000 in left hand column is desirable. I have a Nikon D700 rated at ISO 2303 on that chart and I'd STILL like better low light performance :-). A few examples of a D700 at work in low light here Where ISO not stated it's at least 1600 and may be 3200 or 6400. (Most of these are purposefully at higher ISO than the scvene demanded - except perhaps circus).

comment Is there a free program to (batch) change photo file's date to match EXIF?
jhead is very useful for this - AND for many other jpg file manipulations. Be careful when using it - it is an extremely powerful tool that can wreak a certain amount of havoc if misused. I recommend using it in a batch file so you always do what you intend, and testing the result on a test file set first.

@jrista - Roger Clarks's site is exceedingly impressive. Thanks for the reference.

comment The Lowdown on Image Quality on DSLRs
@jrista - I'd not gained the impression that Canon was much if at all from DxO scores plus other available material. The DxO ISO score shows D800 = 2853 & 5DMKIII = 2293. The difference is log2(2853/2293) = 0.32 stops. {FWIW - about what the Pellicle mirror will take off the D800 sensor in the newly announced 36 mp Sony A99.} My suspicions re DxO scaling for mp difference plus comments from users who own or use both D800 and 5D MkIII suggest they are close to equal and that other aspects would make a 5DMKIII superior by my measure.

comment Is there any way starburst diffractions could be captured with a fixed f/2 smartphone lens?
If that's a fixed f2 lens then the depth of field looks substantially greater than I'd expect. By determining point of focus and location were visible un-focusing occurs you could determine if it was possible with the camera's lens.
