I really enjoy seeing all of the great photos that have been posted. After being on a wait list for 3 1/2 months finally received my D800E and went on an 8 mile hike in the N. Cascades last weekend to see what the camera could do. I am blown away by the dynamic range and quality of detail in the shadows. Out of habit I took quite a few bracketed shots for HDR but during post processing discovered I didn't really need to resort to the HDR process.
Handheld (didn't want to carry the tripod this trip). I had a 30 lb pack so I only carried my 28-300 mm f/3.5-5.6. Looking forward to testing the camera with my 2.8's around home this weekend.
Fall reflections: 1/160 sec at f/11, ISO 400, 90 mm Log - Bulldogpaddle: 1/500 sec at f/11, ISO 400, 170 mm
