D800E is exceeding my expectations
Jul 31, 2012

Got this shot recently in my back yard. 14-24 at 14mm f4.5 1/400. These are anti-crepuscular rays (regular crepuscular rays point downward) which are sometimes called "god beams".

While a lesser camera couldd have gotten this shot, it wouldn't have the very wide dynamic range the D800E captured. Indeed, I took similar shots with my 5DMKII (a camera I love) and they were not as deep.

Still getting used to the Nikon "way" but it really isn't that different. I do love the increased dynamic range.

With the 14-24 as my only lens right now and the inherent DOF plus all I have shot are landscapes, I can't say I have any focus isues.
