Do they???? really?? do you have any evidence that "people here" do???
you are here, do you then???

Yes ....their pictures of their cats have not improved, even when they have upgraded to a D4.

that is a trolling statement

LOL people use the trolling card when they read something that they don't like

some nice pics by the way

Thank you.

You've been on here for 8.5 years not 10, some of the photos are ok, what that has to do with people talking about the D800 god only knows.

Your lens might be sharper than mine but your brain is pretty dull

I was speaking metaphorically.
8.5 years....thanks for that.
I know how to 'work' these forums....its quite good fun.
People bite on anything here.

These forums are all about sword fencing with words, and people with issues getting things off their chest.
A psychologist would have a field day here.
I like pictures, because I'm a newspaper photographer been doing it all my life.
Been there, done it.
Cheers

These cameras would only make you a much happier and inspired photographer.

Very BS cliche beautiful comments...since you want an abusive one - here i am:

1. My impression is that nobody praise you today so you tried to find a subtle way to do it yourself - smth like"is not about the size is how you use it, do you want to show you mine?".

I never heard Michael Schumaher saying "you do not need a ferari to be a good driver, look at my lap times".

You could just post the bloody pictures and if they were good, the praise would come.

2. I beg forgiveness, in the name of all amateurs who dare to have a camera as your highness.

3.judging from your pictures and your username, you embrace the theory "any popularity is better than no popularity", so i'll put you on my ignore list (you're the 1st, congrats)

Go Find Your peace of mind.

I use at the moment a Canon 1DS3 (quite a expensive camera)

I don't believe D800 will not make me a better professional photographer.(not like others here)

We are getting some D800's for their video capability, as we are doing about 50% videos.
Hope that this answer has been of some use to you.
Have a nice day.

Absolutely stanning photographs ! I totally agree. With emotion to better future. A slight better with good photos.

Thank u for your comment, i think that it was one of the few sensible ones.

The rest of them i think were having a 'bad hair day', and wouldn't spot a good photograph if it fell on top of them.
Cheers

Thank u for your fake concern.

Here is another one that u should sent to people.....

Oh by the way...Did u get a model release and permission and agree a fee from your cat when you published its out of focus pictures for every body to see.

Remember that one, as u can then send it to the next cat photographer.

I think the OPs point was, "You don't have to own an expensive camera to post other people's photos without their consent." ... And he proved it.

Why do you assume this.

You are making it look like the only one here that understands photography is you.

There will be a few that think the best camera will make them the best photographer.

I suspect most, like me, will want the best tool to help us with out photography.

All of the advances the D800 has can help to get better pictures if you skills are ok in the first place.

It will not make a bad photographer good but could help a good photographer get shots that he may have missed before because of the limitations of older tech in cameras.

So be it if you are happy with that assumption.

As for myself, I use a Canon 1DS3, will get a couple D800 (if they are as good as we think)
But the D800 will not make me a better photographer.

In fact somebody wrote on one of the forums that it will in fact make some people worst photographer, because the camera is very unforgiving.

Anyway enough of all that.
What did u think of the pictures, great, are they not.
