Thanks for the article, and thanks Nikon for extending our photographic toolset!
I've been using a Hasselblad with a 50MP back for about 3 years so far, so I'm looking forward to lightning my load on a number of future hikes.
I'm a little surprised by some of the comments so far. I'm used to big images and have not had a problem with my workflow. Honestly it hasn't been a problem, three or four minutes at the worst waiting for thumnail generation.
I'm sure that i have a number of lenses that will work fine with the D800e, it's not as if every lens Nikon Has ever made has to work with every camera they have ever made. I'm happy that there is a camera that can extract that level of detail from the lenses that can provide it. As for diffraction limits, it's just another detail of physics that al good photographers have to add in the mix when deciding how to best capture a subject.
Looking forward to having one in my hands one day.
