  • The evolution in AF speed is very impressive with certain old lenses and with certain lens/TC combos , even though I was very happy with the D800e AF performance.
    Group AF is spectacular for BIF.
    I understand the enthusiasm of D4s users...
  • D810 is sooooooo much quieter than D800-D700-D3-D3s.
  • LCD resolution increase is barely noticeable
  • IQ looks similar at first view, high iso might have a little improved.
  • LV shooting and AF in LV has improved very much.
  • and more...

You are kindly invited to visit my D800 vs D810 user review on my website.

Thanks for your attention and kindest regards,

Agree with most of this (or haven't had occasion to test the relevant functionality, e.g. group area AF). DR might be higher at ISO 64 and ISO 80, but its frankly difficult to test without shooting the same scene with both cameras. I think the LCD resolution is the same - the extra (white) pixels are to improve the clarity of the image (particularly in bright light) which has the same resolution as before - to me it looks clearer, but I can't see it has more resolution. Totally agree on the difference in sound (and vibration) - very different from older FX bodies and very similar to the Df.
