D800 - A wonderful camera for travel photography!

After using my D300 for the past five years I was a bit afraid of upgrading to a D800, the initial pics I saw online where taken or in studio or using sturdy tripods.

My trip to Vietnam was a big test of how I would adapt myself to this new camera, new format and new lenses and so far I am so happy with the results that I am considering to buy a second one later this year to avoid changing prime lenses so many times.

Still haven't processed half of my pics from Vietnam but I am really in love with this camera for travel photography.

My D300 was sent for serviced, replaced rubber grips and so but I haven't used it since I bought the D800 and I can't see myself going back despite the D300 still is a terrific camera.

Hope you are not fed up with my travel snaps, here are a few more.

Also you can see many more from this trip on the website in my signature.

Thank you so much for viewing. C&C always appreciated.
