My new toy(s)
May 13, 2012

I know I know, we have seen hundreds of these pointless threads but one more won't hurt!

Picked up my D800 yesterday from my supplier in Gibraltar. It was only the second body they had recieved along with 1 D800E. I had paid €1200 in mid-march to guarantee mine. They told me they are only recieving 1 body (D800/D800E) a week for the foreseeable future.

Over in the lens forum I had a thread going deciding which 50mm to buy for indoor portaits/full body. After playing with the Nikkor 1.4G and 1.8G at various apetures I decided that the extra €150+ was just not worth it. @ 1,4 it seemed soft and by F2 the 1.8 is deadly sharp.

Anyway, enough waffle cos my D800 has it's first job today at 6pm, need to get organised.
