your shot is of a "very contrasty" setting and even my old D1 would have been fine in this situation.

What has me and may others upset is we where hoping for a lot more. I'm not saying it's a bad camera it is just not a good value. its very good but very old tech, and there is NO reason it should not have the D800 AF, and shoot 7-8 FPS. It has the chip and processor to do this but Nikon chose to increase their profit margin.

I am just whining because i'm looking for a good back up and I use manual focus lenses. I would buy the DF and put up with the poor focus screen and all of the other items mentioned but not at this price, I'll get a second D800E.

I feel like Nikon is taking advantage and that is what is most disappointing. look at the sales numbers and you'll see that there are a lot of people like me.
