Re: Questions for Experienced Sony/Pentax (recent) migrants to Nikon..

I switched from a Pentax K5 to a D800. I cannot say I miss anything. maybe the compactness, if that. I have more lenses for the D800 but I still use the same backpack, a Tamrack Adventure 75.

The AF is so much better it is not even funny. Needless to say, the lens availability is a big benefit of the switch.

I do not miss the Limited lenses. The Nikkor 1.8 trilogy (28,50 and 85) gives an amazing value and is more than on par with the Ltd.

I think in-body IS is a better idea but I cannot say I have blurry pictures. Besides, I have the 16-35 VR and 70-300 VR.

Availability of the PC-E lenses is a big plus too. I have the PC-E 24mm and it is a joy to use.
