Some musings on a D800, after my brief acquaintance with this new camera I am of the opinion that it is a cracking Nikon.
For me it handles better than a D700, is much quieter to use, and a fair bit faster in its reactions.
What a pity my photographic skills are not up to the capability of this camera.
I know it has had a few problems to begin with(shame on you Nikon for not owning up) including the P mode auto ISO niggle, but I'm sure that one will be sorted by a firmware update before too long.
I also like the quality of its raw files to me they seem to be fine and I've had absolutely no transfer problems.
So all in all a satisfied punter so far and two days after getting the new body mine fell off my tripod as I was trying to fit it but after a drop of about a metre onto a carpeted floor all seems to be good, you will not believe how many beats my heart missed when that happened!!!
I've heard a few comments on the change of position of various controls and buttons, but surely familiarity and experience of the camera will resolve these differences.

After further use of my D800 I am over the moon with it and find it a dream to use. What a pity I will never be able to outdo its capabilities. I'm not surprised this body won a few awards it gets my vote!
The speed of operation is brilliant, Its me that is not fast enough(oh dear). So all I have to do now is get the operator to develop an eye for a picture, probably some hope, but at least I'm enjoying the attempt. :rolleyes:

It is an absolutely brilliant camera, and a lot of the concerns about file size and handholding problems were just scare stories. It is the most versatile camera I have ever owned.

I have to concur with what both Anthony and Phil have to say, truly IMHO the best Nikon yet for me, I just love the ability to crop virtually to your hearts content. Obviously it would be better to crop in camera, but hey who's perfect(apart from me of course). :rolleyes:
