I thoroughly agree with what Stan is saying. I just received my D800 on Monday 16 July, just after returning from 10 days in Montana and Yellowstone NP. I have over 1,000 photos I've been sorting and editing - and other commitments so I haven't had as much time as I would like to get to know my D800.

That said I've shot well over 100 photos with it and I have been truly astounded with the photo quality, color depth and detail in each photo. I usually shoot strictly Manual, but the D800 "Auto ISO" knows the lens your using and focal length and sets the exposure for that. I've been experimenting in "A" with an aperture f/10. I'm including a "snapshot" of a small dragonfly I shot this afternoon, hand held an old 24-85mm f3.5-4.5 G no VR (85mm at about 12").

I handle this camera every day since getting it and shoot just for the heck of it. I have not had the problems with the camera locking up (I've deleted and edited lots of images in camera and all my display features are on). No left focus problems or green cast on the display so I hope Nikon has those problems solved. Knocking on wood that everything is fine with this camera.

The D800 is totally astounding and I don't think it can be compared with any other camera. It is truly in a class by itself.

Well Wishes,

Ken
