I was amazed at the really slow shutter speed and handheld you took these pictures at. I guess the VR was a great help. I can see the man's hand moving is one shot. It makes me feel a lot better about the camera all around and not having to use a tripod all the time. There was another post that used the Nikon 28-300mm lens that took some great pictures too, so that show you don't have to have the best lens to get some great pictures with this camera. Not that the 28-300mm is that bad of a lens, but at least you can use some of the cheaper lenses.
Like to see one of your RAW pictures when you take one, and maybe at f8 to see how they look.

1/13, 1/3, 1/5, 1/4 1/10 shutter speeds. Can not load raw as my Mac is OS 10.5.8 and lepoard or something like that, cant install Apeture update for D800 support . Need to update to a new Mac or soup up the one I have soon. Exif is on a link below each pic.

Excuse me but I have to ask, why were you shooting so slow ?

Keeping in period with the auto show: “Great balls of fire!” Not keeping in period: “It ain’t fair!” Looking at your photos, it tempted me to run out and get one of them 800’s;” I have the 16-35. Well, not really. The shops were closed, but it crossed my mind!

holy #### ... I was looking at your images again ... you must have the best handheld technique on the planet earth. Look at the blur of the people walking in the bg. The only way I could be that steady without a tripod/monopod would be to use a beanbag or something. ___________________________________________________________
