"D800 test. Dickcissel, Blue Grossbeak, Not-edited, or cropped"
Hey Everybody, Nice to see a lot of the folks are still around. Great images are being posted--I really have missed posting and replying.
Finally broke down, giving into temptation and buying a D800. Said goodbye to my D3x a while back.
I shot these this morning. Forget to reset to Raw after shooting some b-day pics on Sunday--these are shot in jpeg at normal quality setting--with the exception of the Killdeer, it was in Raw from the other day.
All are unedited, straight from camera. Didn't bother to crop them or sharpen.
I used a 600 mm with and w/o a 1.7tc from car, balancing from the window. Quite happy with the results.

That' s funny, Gerard, My wife thought I was kidding about the Dickcissel, when I mentioned them the first time.
My goals with d800 is to shoot fewer images per trip, make better shots, take home only the best, keep only the highest quality ones on the hard drive, use PS sparingly to avoid building large files and maintain better control over what is on the computer.
