D800 first outing - happy - feedback please.
May 6, 2014

Dear all,

After much procrastination I finally went for a D800 (after first buying a 70D and finding the images very soft compared to my RX100). I first looked at a 700D, then moved to 70D and was seduced by features. Soon though I just wasn't happy with the pictures even on good lenses. So I moved to a D610, but it had a fault. A D800 deal came up and I couldn't refuse.

For anyone who is wondering - IMO ergonomics of Nikon are different - no better or worse (so far) and I think most people could quite easily learn both very quickly.

Yesterday I went for a walk and took some photos (which I might have to post into separate posts as I have lost this entry once already putting them all in grrrrr. I know it's wrong but I appreciate the ability to crop and still retain some quality. But I'll let you be the judges of that - let me know. Thanks!

Heavy crop! 85mm f1.8.
