"RE: D3x, D800"

I am trying to find a grip. NO ONE has them. Well one person did, but they were asking a $110 price premium over MSRP for it, and I refused to pay that much.

Even with the grip, the feel won't be the same as the D3s. It's just a smaller camera, period. It won't be as bad as my D7000 which I can barely work with, but it's no pro body either.

I shot a bikini contest last weekend on the D800. BRIGHT red, green, and other suits, under strobes. I had NO color issues, and from 40ft away, shooting full body with the 70-200, I could zoom in and almost count the eyelashes on the contestants. The two pings in the eye from my two strobes were as clear as day. And I was shooting on a monopod only.

Get it. You'll love it. And if you don't you can sell it at full price, guaranteed.


>Have you used the grip with the D800? Yeah, it's expensive,
