Print it at 40" x 60" and take another look

Compared to the same shots shot at F/8 or better.

But all looks good at 500px x 400px.....and that is all that matters....right?

Now...of course ANYBODY can buy any camera they want and do anything with it. I am not telling people what to do.

But for ME....the D800 is a large print generating machine. I will be using best shot practices, post processing to maximize the data, and printing very large and with more detail than the people using it at f/22. It is that simple.

If you want to shoot at f/22.....have at it. Me...for my goals...I know better.

Oh...and at wider angles, hyperfocal distances make f/8 not much of a limitation. ; )
