Few thoughts,1. Not very impressed with many of these pictures esp the 16-35mm, they looked way better in the dpreview of the lens shot with the D3X. However, the processed pics do look better.2. I am now seeing why the AA filter is removed and hoping the D800E does a better job.3. Yes it is a sony sensor, the D3 and D3X were not made by Sony the end!4. Also to clear up the myth, you don't have to be more careful with focus accuracy unless you have a shallow DoP, or you're shooting at a higher iso due to the fact that noise will degrade parts of the image. There is absolutely no pt to shoot at high iso's at 36 degraded mp's. Pro's know this and will set their cam accordingly.5. That being said ppl caring abt the high iso samples of the D800 clearly don't understand the application of this camera.
