Al,

If you're anything other than an exclusively landscape photographer, do you find the extra megapixels a blessing or a curse?

for landscape work at base iso the extra megapixels are fantastic. However, for other purposes they can be a pain. In my experience steadier handholding and/or higher shutter speeds can be required for a sharp image. People may say storage is cheap, but the sheer processing power required to open and edit a D800 raw will slow down your mac or PC.

Is the camera versatile enough to take good family photos (I have a very mobile 3yr old at home!) as well as portraits, sports etc?

portraits it does well, I would rather use something smaller for family photos. I think the D4 is a better option for sports

If you had the choice again, would you still choose D800 over the D610?

Thanks for any thoughts!

Al
