A great camera that does almost everything wonderfully well. Ultimate resolution is less that state of the art at 12mp but the feel and balance are a joy. If ever you need to hammer in some 6" nails I suspect it would do a great job as well. The ability to hold in portrait mode one-handed really is a delight. It is no pocket camera though, put a decent lens on it and the strap round your neck and it could easily chop you year off! But all told, a fantastic peice of kit and most affordable these days at c£500 from many dealers.

Problems:

Just one. The sensors fail! Mine has a serial number starting 1503 and after less than 4k exposures it died and went to sensor heaven. Mr Nikon did offer to fix it for the price of a new D800 which I thought was nice, If you have one and it works - keep it. If your senor goes - keep it, mount it on a plinth and if you ever need to drive a 6" nail into something hard - you have the ideal tool.
