My partner got D800e. Serial 30104XX. this is Dec 15th 2012 from b&h. not sure if the dreaded autofocus issue is present or not. I could not detect any difference when focusing in live view with the center point vs the left one on the same subject with a tripod)
However, we do not have hi resolution autofocus lens at 28mm or below. So not sure if I can definitely detect it.
I found the camera's selection of iso/shutter/aperture combos in indoor lighting with SB 910 or without -- somewhat confusing.
For example in auto-iso mode the camera always bumps up the iso (up to the highest it had configured in the menu (6400) ) -- rather than increasing flash output or opening up the aperture.
This the first Nikon dslr that I had tried (and the lens is 2002 Nikon 50mm AF) -- not the latest ones.
So may be my expectations of the program mode are off. Also not sure if I would be seeing different behavior if I would have used newer lenses.
does anybody have the 'typical cheat sheet' of setting adjustments' that one would make right after getting the camera?
