Every result I get from D800 BLOWS ME AWAY!! - 12 img

It is official as far as I am concerned, the D800 is RIDICULOUSLY GOOD! It is criminal what you can do with this camera and every time I use it, the better I get to know it and the better it performs.

Here are some images taken today of a variety of subjects and a variety of lenses. Also, all shots pretty much a run through with generic quick post process and noise reduction. No big time spent on them, so, with more care they could be better, IMO.

Firstly, Dynamic range and what you can recover from shadows and make look like it isn't HDR.

D800 + 14-24 f2.8 @ f16. Nothing wrong with diffraction here!

These haystacks are about 5ft high.
D800 + 70-200 f2.8 VRII @ f4

D800 + 500 f4 VR @ f5
How do you like the "pop" or "3D" look!!

D800 + 300 f2.8 VRII + 1.4x TCII @ f5
Even "pop" with the 300 + TC!!

Now, I think this is ridiculous. Here is an Australian Lyrebird in the undergrowth almost dark. D800 + 70-200 f2.8 VRII 1/60sec f4 ISO6400!! handheld They say we need a tripod to see the D800 at it's best? Can it be better?

crop Look at the detail!!

D800 + 500 f4 VR f5.6, ISO6400!! 1/320sec, handheld!

DX crop

D800 + 500 f4 VR, f5, ISO6400!!, 1,250sec handheld


D800 + 500 f4 VR, f6.3, ISO6400!!, 1/320ec handheld.
