I rented a D800 a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it.
My current camera is a D7000 and I shoot a lot of wildlife. I rarely go above ISO 800 with the D7K and I wanted to see how the D800 would work at higher ISO. All I can say is wow.

These photos were taken with my AFS 300mm f4 and a 1.7 TC, except the horse (no TC). I cropped about 25% off of the full FX images and resized. Edited in CNX. I had NR off in camera, so what you see is the minimum the camera applies above 1600.

The photo of the squirrel at ISO 6400 blew me away.

Thanks for the comment. I was beginning to think these samples were not very impressive.

Terrific shots. I currently only have access to an iPad so I am unable to view the Exif data, can you tell me please if these were shot in DX mode?

Thanks

Hi Richard, These were shot in FX mode and I cropped off about 25% before resizing.
