"RE: D3x, D800"

The lens comment was from a pro acquaintance; just his observation and opinion. He wondered if D800 exceeds the capabilities of 35mm format lenses. He was not making a critical review, just offering his observation. Bear in mind too, that he shoots for extreme detail for demanding clients.

I do not expect the next revision until May 2013. I leave on my trip, if I go, in September 2012.

We always have a choice with technology: keep spending money in the hope that it is better, or be content with what we have. I have way to much money in glass to replace it all, and I don't have that much time left to enjoy what I have, let alone buy more.

I want another FX body because I want to have two cameras with me, and I want them to complement each other. The D4 is not enough of an improvement over the D3s to excite me, and the reduced battery life is not appealing.

I had a D800 on order and then canceled it; The D3x is gaining appeal for me. The reality is that I am not good enough for the camera and lenses I have.
