going FF, waiting for delivery ,how do you guys cope???

well  , I have been a Pro DX die hard for some time now and after what I have said on the subject of DX vs FF I guess this thread make me somewhat of a traitor ,  but Nikon , enough is enough , I had got used to the pro layout"controls" of the Dxxx series ,and no matter what anyone says , the other DX models Dont come close to the satisfaction of using the D300 ,dispite having superior sensors .

In the absence of a successor ,and the realization that Nikon appear to be pushing all of us who want Pro standard DSLRs towards FF, I have Decided to go for a D800.

I am far from being a Pro ,but just love the controls and ergonomics i get from the Pro range .

Ordered it yesterday, and its scheduled for delivery tommorow, and to be honest I am excited and apprehensive at the same time . like an expectant father I find myself cradling a glass of "Abunadh" and staring at sexy pictures of D800's in various poses . by tommorow I will be a wreck.

I have ordered a couple of 32gb lexar(1000x Pro and 600xSDHC) cards , and have downloaded and read the manual (twice) before committing myself .

Nikon will almost certainly bring out a D400 now ,within a month or two , but I am not that bothered ,after seeing what can be done with the D800 , i have decided its the one for me , granted i will miss the reach ,and i will probably have a rough time initially adjusting to a new technique ,but thats part of the fun .

so you guys are going to have to put up with another stray from the DX gang for a while ,I will be looking for guidance no doubt, be gentle with me wont you .
