I'm sorry folks. The Nikon forum is the place to be for polite decency. They are great people. This forum will certainly help to finish Canon off if everyone id not careful. People are replying you don't need any special techniques to use the D800. So why does Nikon warn that you need the very best glass with this camera? (I know about the space centre photos taken with the 24-120mm and they were great!)

Why does Jim Brandenburg say you need specialist techniques to use it? Why is there printed lists of advice that you must use a shutter speed DOUBLE the normal focal length of the lens in use?

Well .. it's because this camera is a one that you need to know what you're doing when taking pics with this camera. It's obvious from the posts that this forum is full of armchair photographers. It's pathetic if that's true. Subprime hasn't even got a 5D3. OMG .. and he's telling me that I haven't got a clue what I'm on about, it appears ..

Well I've done many photoshoots with my 5D3, and for me, it leaves my 5D2 dead in the water. End of this storyline for me .. Thank you for those on this forum that realise this. Nikon can't come anywhere near my 100-400L OR 70-200 f4L .. their range of lenses is haphazard and lacking, with star lenses dotted all over the place, Crap! You know exactly where you're at with the Canon range .. Everyone may not be the best lens on the planet, so what? They will still look brilliant on large prints!

I just wish that Canon wasn't pricing their lenses to fund a new whaling fleet after theirs was wiped out in the tsunami .. Let the Okinawa flame thrower GI guys begin ..
