Re: It's people liike you that should get off their high horses

I came from the d7000 ( the same AF module as the d600/d610 ) to the d7100 and d800 and I notice a difference in AF quality now that I understand it a bit more. I had some problems with my d800 giving an ERR so after using the d7100 with no ill affects when I returned my d800 I went ahead and got the 800e...it responds even better so far....

Here are sample shots ( and remember im newish to the Nikon system so Im still learning it ) ALL the basketball shots are either d7100 or D800 ( new to shooting BB too ).

Indoor low light action


Indoor low light wedding




wildlife static shot on a 150-500mm Sigma wide open


Wildlife Dynamic


Landscape Handheld ( this is where I need to really work )




Its pretty evident to me the D800/800e can do it ALL....its the best single camera I can imagine....and for ME would have been the absolute ultimate DSLR had it been 5-7fps.....I LOVE my D800e and im just getting started with it...

Sorry for the links instead of embed, but i cant get the forum to post my watermarked images for some reason....
