Thanks Andy,

Love the Goldeneye, this is also @ 1.5 digital zoom.

I wonder if you are shooting in DX crop mode?

Thanks for taking the time to post all this, really helped me decide on the D800E.

If you get chance with the serial number that would be great.



Graham, I have Pm'd the serial number.

Yes, I sometimes use crop mode to reduce file size or to increase the fps IF the subject is small in the viewfinder. I have made a few mistakes though where the subject was bigger than I thought - or flew nearer and so ended up chopping of a wing tip or tail. I am therefore far more careful now and only go to crop mode when no danger of clipping bits off. It is very fast to change from one to the other though via a pre-assigned button.

Good luck
