New D800, First Thoughts

I rec'd my new d800 and really appreciate the advice and guidance from those on this board who helped with my questions.

This is my first FX camera. I have shot the D1, D1x, D200, D70, D300, D7000 over the years and my first thoughts are that my wides are really wide now!

The camera is quite the beast, especially with the grip, after using the d7000 for the past year.

I had two major concerns...speed for sports photography and the size of the files choking my less than a year old computer. Neither seem to be a problem!

I am still learning and will be for a month at least, but I think she is a keeper!

Here are some images from the last 2 days...

shot with my lensbaby and Sweet35 optic...shot at iso 6400!

two HDR images...shot with 17-35...

Some action shots at my tennis club. Biggest issue was remembering to fill the DX frame and not the FX view finder! Most shot at iso 6400
