I'm not being a smart guy but I must ask. What do they do with cameras that have been tried out, then not bought? It seems like they are no longer new, but I beat they go back onto the shelve. Yes I rented a d800 and didn't buy it. Using a tripod for my normal shooting and I was not getting well focused images? I'm like you, I have thousands of dollars of lenses and can not afford to change brands. I did buy a d4 after trying out the d800 and I am happy with it. I don't use the outter focus points very often, only when I am using the 51 point dynamic focus and the outter focus points may not be used if I am photographing a slower bird in flight. I mostly use the 21 point on most moving bird subjects. I never select an outter point when I am using only one focus bracket.

Good luck Chris with your photography.


I wish outer focus point is the only issue. Sometimes the center is out of whack.
