Superka: And what about Auto ISO function? Is it as good as Nikon D800 or poor as Nikon D7000?
Superka, what is the difference between the d7000 and d800 auto ISO? I use a d300s and like what it does.
fastprime: Can someone explaing/expand on what he meant when he said:
"With this camera you can focus at a combined aperture of F8, which isn't possible with the D7000."
Kim, that's not what they mean at all for the f/8. It's not about stopping down. You can stop an f/2.8 down to f/8 and it will autofocus just fine. The aperture blades don't actually close down to f/8 until the shutter is released. So when you are looking through the viewfinder, the lens is always set to the largest aperture (therefore letting in the most amount of light for autofocus). Hope that makes sense!
FP - they mean that when you put a lens whose maximum aperture is f/8, the d7000 will not autofocus. This is usually the case when using teleconverters. Think of an f/4 lens with a 2x teleconverter on it. The d600 will still allow you to focus with this combo, which is really nice for wildlife photographers!
TOF guy: I've bought a very similar unit (actually probably the very same unit) from Cameta Camera in NYC for $59. It is advertized on their e-bay store. That includes shipping! The advantage (for us in the US) over ordering from HK is that the grip is shipped from a warehouse in the USA: it took 2 days to be delivered. Also Cameta camera is a good store with a good return policy. Pixel is probably okay but shipping back the accessory to HK would be more of an hassle.
TOF, do you have any photos of it?
