Re: D800/e users...

Hi all, and thanks very much for the comments so far!

Ralf, I'm particularly interested in this:

You will benefit from fast focusing AF-S-lenses, not so much from "fast" glas like 1,4 lenses, as depth of field will be too shallow.

The combination I was thinking about was the D800e and the 85mm f1.4G. Are you saying that there's something about the D800/e that makes the 85 1.4 more difficult to use than it would be on any other body? I've seen many ambiguous reviews which say something similar, but I'm not sure if they mean that my pictures will be rubbish, or simply no better than a 'normal' DSLR until I've mastered the technique for exploiting the huge resolution.

Thanks again,
