I've had my D800 for a year

and I've struggled with left AF issues, focusing in tungsten light, and some general focusing inconsistencies. Now, between a trip to the LA service center and the FW upgrades, my D800 seems to be working like I had always hoped. So what do I have to show for having it for a year, as opposed to waiting until now to purchase? Some headaches and worries for sure. But I've also had the use of an incredible camera that is capable of amazing photos and I've been challenged to really up my game as a photographer. It's been a wild but very worthwhile ride -- and so I'm glad I bought my D800 when I did, but I certainly understand those who have opted to wait. Enjoy your new D800. And take a ton of pictures!
