My friends who shot 4x5 and 8x10 in the past are getting older (60+). They love the idea of the high-rez D800E and not having to lug around a big-fat camera, holders and tripod anymore. Yes, technology marches on.

Zilvinas K: People should look back to the fundamentals of what 35mm format is all about. It is fotojournalism, all about compact size and high iso. If you are a seroius studio shooter you go with medium format, 36 MP on 35mm format is irrelevant. If you are a photojournalist, then you choose clearly unsurpassed high iso best performer D700 (dpreview tests clearly show that, you can't beat laws of physics with a size of photosites). If you neither but a pixel peeper with money then D800 is for you. Nikon has clearly lost a logical path of development. Focus on optics not pixels.

Technology marches on. I am still holding out for an ocular implant.

Yes, I would love to see D800E test shots. Thanks.

jon404: Good for an entry-level DSLR. The ISO 3200 capability is impressive. But the lens isn't particularly sharp, more on a P&S quality level. Anyone moving up from a small-sensor camera would probably want something a good deal better than this, since you are sacrificing the portability of, say, an Olympus XZ-1.

That harbor shot was fuzzy... too.

tkbslc: Pretty great time we live in when even the $600 cameras do pretty good ISO 6400-12800 and have enough resolution for monster prints. Add the 35mm f1.8 or 50mm f1.8 for $200 and you have an $800 kit that can shoot places you wouldn't have dreamed of 3-4 years ago.

Back in the day you would buy a Nikon and it was good for many years. Today, one or two years. It is all relative.

skytripper: What I would like to know if why anybody thought it would be a good idea to make a camera like this in red???

My wife likes red. She has a new red Canon.

To bad the kit lens doesn't (apparently) do the sensor justice. Just okay.

More crazy talk about Photoshop. I thought in 1970 I was hearing too much blather from folks in college yapping about their Nikons, Hasselblads and Leicas. Photoshop is a great tool in the hands of an artist/technician. Yes, I would love to upgrade.

Great news for the Photoshop junkie. This software keeps getting better and better and I still only use a few of the tools. Too bad my software and computer budget requires that I wait six months before I upgrade and send my cash to Silicon Valley.

Nice, but not my cup of tea. Yes, another one of my brilliant observations. Thanks.

audijam: buy D800 if you take pictures of your girls
buy Leaf if get paid to take pictures of other people's girls

end of discussion

Obviously this person never got paid. It is not the camera it is the photographer.

Yes, Photoshop is the devil's spawn.

jmmgarza: High end cameras were selling like hot cakes at LA's Samy's Camera Saturday. It is amazing to see folks travel from places like New Caledonia all the way to Samy's to get a camera, lenses and supplies. Canon, Sony and Nikon have some great new cameras out. Can't wait to buy one (online) myself.

You have got to get out more often. Yes, there is wonderful world outside.

jmmgarza: Show me the video at high rez. That is all I ask.

1) Night club bar scene
2) Wedding reception
3) Football game (day and night)
4) At a sunny beach
5) A studio interview one and two shot

Thanks...

I guess all that film and video I have shot since 1968 has been for naught. Thanks for the wonderful advice.

Walmart, Best Buy and Target... prepare to sell thousands of these new entry-level Nikons. If I wasn't such a camera snob, I would buy one too. For me it is FX or nothing.

My wife loves red cameras. I don't.
