Finally entered the dSLR world
Dec 8, 2012

Yes, I finally bought the D800e+some lenses and accesories. Thanks to my DPreview fellow members for the advice on my purchase list. For anyone that might be interested I bought it from B&H, the camera came in brand new condition, my first shot showed 1 shutter actuation, and even though I haven't performed the rigorous tests described in this forum for the left AF issue, I took pics with AF points covering the whole range and they come out tack sharp.

This is my first dSLR ever as I come from P&S cameras (my last one was the G12). My expectation was that the learning curve was going to be a bit hard, however it was all the opposite, a very easy camera to operate at least the basic functions (of course I have yet to master all the special turnarounds and advanced techniques). When I saw the pics I took it felt like a wow effect, impressive quality jump from anything I got before. The gear feels heavy, but it is worth it given the IQ it yields. I don't regret at all the money I spent, it will provide a lot of pleasure in the years to come.
