Funny that it now takes a $3000 purchase to make me giddy when I get something new. Oh to be little agian. Enjoy!

Lynn,

Congratulations on acquiring the hottest camera ever! You are the proud owner of a genuine medium format camera in a 35mm body. It has the best sensor and widest dynamic range of any production camera in the world.

My best advice to you...

Buy bigger hard drives!

Wait till you get interested in the V1 kit + FT-1 for $500 and can use all your AF-S lenses on it with a 2.7 crop factor as a teleconvertor!! Read the Nikon 1 forum

Congratulations Lynn!

I love my D800! (repeat everything Darrell Young said here) I also strongly recommend a good book on the D800 such as Digital Darrell's.

I trust you will enjoy your D800 tremendously and be awed by the photos you shoot with it!

Well Wishes,

ken

Just got your D800 book. Moving slowly because I have to have, of all things, an eye procedure. Tough working on pics and reading right now, but will be knee-deep enjoying my new purchase soon!
