IN-camera GPS is looking to be a nice feature (D800)?

I realize GPS (IN CAMERA) has been discussed before (many times). and there is that new Nikon ADD On GPS.
and many have blew it off. (as did I)

But, when Lightroom v4 makes it easy to use this feature (automatic) ... AND
includes it in a easy Database. AND plays it as a key new "UPDATED" feature :).

imho, IN CAMERA GPS starts to become more of a mainstream DSLR "Feature".
particularly when Lightroom ADDs features to it in the new v4 update.

Because I don't shoot a lot of landscape I always thought of GPS in camera as "just" a Fun feature.

As with video , (which I just shot a AD with a video guy today). GPS "Easy" location searches via Lightroom of your pics can be a good thing.

GPS is now on pretty much all our very small smart phones and P&S ... it's probably a good time to add it to PRO DSLRs too (internal) ... not as another thing to loose on a shoot. (I have enough small loose stuff to loose on a shoot already)

Put me down as evolved ... "FOR IT".
