What were Nkon thinking with the 'quiet' mode on the D800? It's barely quieter than the normal mode. I can't understand how this 'feature' got beyond an early prototype. Weird.
The quiet mode on D800 is not quiet at all. They should have tackled this issue during the prototype stage indeed. Many pro's benefit from a real quiet mode. Weddings photographers, photo journalists, wildlife photographers etc.
D800 is a fantastic camera. Nikon could have made the it even better
