I am continually blown away by the ability of the D800, but also the whole Nikon system, ie superb lenses, VR, excellent AF etc, helping to make ordinary photogs look good!

Here are some Eastern Yellow Robins (Asutralian bird) shots I took the other day late afternoon and a very dull day under tree shade, around the 8EV mark.

Cropped about 30% off linear dimension.
