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.

I transitioned from the D700 to the D800 relatively late compared to most people here.
