Re: Looks like new cams focus better not worse

I am only basing on what I have read on this forum about the many complaints on the 800 focusing issues.

So, you're being a parrot and repeating information based upon sources of questionable experience....or...better're repeating misinformation posted by others with no D800 experience parroting the information of others....

I am not knocking other peoples preferences but I know what i need. Split second focusing that nails it.

The D800 does that.  You should give it a try.  It does every bit as good as my D700

I do believe the camera would be fine if you are shooting subjects that you have time to make sure you have correct focus, like formals, but even then some are saying the camera with some lens has problems.

You're not really in a position to make that proclamation as you have no experience with the camera

Plus the 12 MP.s has more than enough res. for what I need.

Then why would you even care about the D800 at all?
