D800 - different copies, plus repairs with tight tolerances - continued pd unpredictability. Not sure what to say about this camera.  Mega frustrating.  Same lenses on different bodies do not yield same problems.  Mansurov etc. seem to have similar complaints - but this doesn't seem to get much press.  Basically not reliable through the viewfinder, which sucks because it makes nice images.  Perfect in liveview.  Video is beautiful - but somewhat limited compared to competition. Breakdown:  PD ...

I purchased this camera about a month ago and have taken several hundred photos. I have combiled this camera with the Tamron 24-70 F:2.8 VC because I need the VC. I absolutely love this camera and lens combo. the photos are crisp with excellent color and contrast. I can easily shoot at 1600 ISO without any noise. The noise becomes aparant at 3200ISO, but barely. Together with the Tamron 24-70 VC, I have not encountered a situation that required a higher ISO that 1600 (indoor wedding, ...

I walk out of the camera shop in July 2012 with my first DSLR Nikon (D800) paired with the 200-400 VRII. After primarily using the D800 for over a year I can say that at this time for me it’s the most versatile SLR I have ever owned. I primarily photograph wildlife & landscape and using the D800 fits in nicely with the way I photograph, giving me a tool that has an equal balance of IQ throughout all the lighting conditions that I subject my camera to. (1) AF- simply the best I have ever used, a ...

Pros : - At the moment I believe this is the best DSLR ever. Simply. ALL things are great inside this beast except for minor complaints (see cons). - Killer raw files (dynamic range headroom, color, sharpness, fine details even after a strong denoising...). It is possible to recover almost ANY error. Cons : - Occasional sky banding in jpgs. Raw is often needed (I shoot raw+jpg). - Jpg clipping (expecially reds) is not rare (but shoot raw and you are invincible :-) ) - It is very bulky, a pain ...

There is little point in reviewing something until you have got to know it well. So I have held off reviewing the D800 until I felt comfortable I could give an honest, rounded opinion. I should also explain that the D800 is not the only DSLR I own - and for much of my commercial work I currently use a company D7000 converted to FS. My first DSLR experience was a D200. This was moving (down-grading) from an F5 - although I worked a lot with scanned 'wet' film I was slow to adopt digital ...
