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 ...

I purchased Nikon D800 emotionally. Instead of really weighten all pro and cons, I just took it. First of all, I should say that it is great camera. I would event say - it is absolutely best camera at the moment IMO. It has great image quality: resolution, colors, dynamic range, hi-iso capabilities. BUT in most cases, I put the pictures on the web or print A4 (20x30 cm) format as maximum. Do I really need these 36 MP? Answer is - In most cases "No". 36 Mp is sometimes problem: 70 Mb raw ...

D800/E is a wonderful camera. It is fast (focus), and has 100% viewfinder. It has highest resolution currently in Nikon's family. The AWB is improved, and the color is more neutral than predecessor. The color tone is second generation from Nikon. Hence, if you compare with D700/D3 etc, last generation is more saturated / more contrast. Also, the DR of D800 is a lot better than D700. Regarding the ISO, I can say, it is a bit better than D700. But keep in mind, don't enlarge both ...

I'm a photo enthusiast, and photograph with many cameras all the time. I've been a D700 user since it was announced (July 2008), and I pre-ordered the D800 the minute it was announced. The D800 is a FANTASTIC camera. It's slightly lighter than the D700, which accounts for a huge difference to me. I use the camera primarily handheld, and in low light situations (high ISO). The camera is impressive in every regard. It is fast, sharp, and ergonomically fit. I love to photograph my family with ...
