Re: D800/e users...

Hi Stuart,

when I owned my D600, that would have been first up for shooting sports as opposed to the D800E.

So - this is the key statement for me. On paper the D800e has a much more sophisticated AF system, which I assume would result in fewer mis-focussed shots while tracking fast-moving action. Why then would you leave that camera on the shelf and take the D600 with it's cut-down AF system?

I don't mind a slow and deliberate post-processing workflow, but I don't want to disadvantage myself with a camera whose handling or performance is somehow compromised by its other features.
