>Hi Wayne
>First, I think that you mean the D800 as opposed to dx 800.
>All of your lenses will work on the D800, but the 18-55 and

>As for purchasing the D800 vs. the D800E, you may want to look

>As for portrait lenses, you may want to take a look at the

>I hope that helps.

Your right D800, should have proofread. The lens question was for a fixed prime lens for portraits

Thanks again I moved my post over to the D800 forum and will find out how to delete this thread after your reply
