Owner of a D800e, I tried the new S at Photokina. It has an outstanding OVF and an outstanding screen. The dynamic range looks to be very good from what I could see on the screen. The body is relatively small for a such a large "fake MF" sensor with only a few buttons (much less than the D800)I tested the 70mm lens which is very well built and autofocuses relatively quickly. It is a big chubby though.
Concerning the attitude of Mr Schulz, well he is a passionated person and he's a kind of salesman. And yes German are often a little be arrogant but who cares...
