"RE: D800E for macro?"

I have the Nikon D800E and I am a close-up and macro photographer. However, I just got it yesterday, so it is a bit new still.

I should have known, but I still was surprised at how small the camera is, about the size of my D7000. I wish it was built like the D4, which is what I have been using until this arrived. It is, however, about 1 lb. lighter, so that is good. I will see if I can post a photo or so here. Not used to this forum.

I am the mentor of the Close-up/Macro forum at NikonGear.com, which is mostly a lens site. I love lenses.

For those of you who stack focus, I find that using Zerene Stacker (my program of choice) that the D800E makes it much easier than earlier Nikon bodies. It takes much less retouching which suggests that single-shot photos should be re-examined with this new camera. I am very impressed with the "E" version of the D800 and it will be a game changer for those of us who like sharp focus and stacking. Just my opinion. I have some free books on focus stacking (but not yet with the D800E) here for those trying to learn:

These are taken with the D800E, Cosina/Voigtlander 125mm f/2.5 APO-Lanthar, and Zerene Stacker
