First Shots D800 w/28-300mm Nikkor

I'm trying so hard not to 'gush like a girl'...but I just picked up my D800 and am sitting here looking at the very first shots, and I'm almost stupefied!

It is everything that its' most fervent adherents claimed!

Here are (literally) the first two shots. Both hand-held (the billboard was actually quick-snapped out the car window while I was stopped at a traffic light!) and taken before I had even had a chance to read the manual or even know what settings to use!

I'm certainly not a pro (or even semi-pro)...nor am I an artist!
Just a long-time amateur who wants to be able to get the most out of my images.

When I first went digital, it was with the D100, then the D2H, D70, D90, D7000 and, ultimately the D800. While the others were, basically, just 'step-ups'...the D800 is a game-changer!

PS - I hope these are sized correctly. I've got a lot to learn about dealing with the mega-sizes the D800 produces!
