Thrilled - We Have Two!
In reply to trino, Nov 6, 2012

I was weaned on MF (4x5) & LF (8x10) View Cameras in the late 60s.

Thus, D800E is my large print, landscape camera of choice for rich detail.

I rarely shoot without a tripod and use proper technique (M Up, Cable release, etc.)

The 24-120 VR f:4 is a great walk-around lens on this camera, though I use the holy trinity for most of my careful tripod work.

I don't shoot fast-moving subjects with many AF sensors so I don't worry about a potential AF problem.  In fact I haven't even tested my left sensor with wide primes to see if the problem exists.

Some critics are disappointed with LV focusing.  I have solved that potential problem by using a Zacuto finder.

My wife uses the D800 (mostly with 85 f:1.4) for studio portrait work and her only complaint is that the files are so crisp she has to spend more time retouching her vain subjects.  LOL!
