D800E first impressions

I got my D800E yesterday.

First impressions are very good. Left side focus is fine with 85mm F1.8, 50mm F1.8,
24-70 and 14-24 at 14mm.

LCD is not green and looks fine. Viewfinder focuses and is sharp.

I haven't had any lockups and I am using 32gb 60mb/sec CF Sandisk as jpeg and 32gb 95mb/sec SD Sandisk as NEF.

Images are very sharp.

I am off to do a shoot and will post more about it later.

I am using 14-24, 24-70, 50 F1.8 and 85mm F1.8.

I will also be using a TEC110 fluorite triplet telescope at 613mm and this is one of the worlds best optics. I need a Nikon adapter though before I can use it though.

Anyone know of a Canon lens to Nikon body adapter? They all seem to be the other way round.
