Sarah Terra: I retract my previous comment, didn't see that it takes a new kind of battery. Deal breaker on that alone.... kind of sad actually, these are deliberate nerfs ...this won't won't be a big seller.

They should have gone significantly smaller lighter more compact with moderate buffer, 7 fps and exceptional battery life, USB 3 and GPS. Bummer nikon

Looks like the D500 and D750 successor will be the way to go at the Nikon camp for at least 2 more years

Forward and backward compatible means it does take the old battery. Nikon simply has improved it and sells the camera with the newer version.

Thanks for the article, and thanks Nikon for extending our photographic toolset!

I've been using a Hasselblad with a 50MP back for about 3 years so far, so I'm looking forward to lightning my load on a number of future hikes.

I'm a little surprised by some of the comments so far. I'm used to big images and have not had a problem with my workflow. Honestly it hasn't been a problem, three or four minutes at the worst waiting for thumnail generation.

I'm sure that i have a number of lenses that will work fine with the D800e, it's not as if every lens Nikon Has ever made has to work with every camera they have ever made. I'm happy that there is a camera that can extract that level of detail from the lenses that can provide it. As for diffraction limits, it's just another detail of physics that al good photographers have to add in the mix when deciding how to best capture a subject.

Looking forward to having one in my hands one day.
