I would steer clear of the D800. I had the D300 and then upgraded to the D800.

I had the D300 for several years. Loved it! The post-processing was a joy. Then I got the D800 and I was giddy happy about it. but the post-processing was terrible. Banding occurred quickly, colors were off, and I sold that thing much more quickly than I anticipated.

Conversely, the D700 is a dream to post-process. Especially for portraits.

I'm sure other people's opinions will differ. But to me the D800 was rushed. That sensor tech wasn't ready, and the results were funky and strange. The dynamic range was on paper quite good, but in practice I could get the old D300 to do better.

I wouldn't use a D800 if someone gave it to me.

Hi.  Why is easy to post process portraits  with d700?
