I agree with you Eric.

I have been shooting D800/e now since March, and I never shot in a studio with controlled lighting. I have shot landscapes as well as birds in flight...the full spectrum of demands on a camera body.

When I am processing the images, I am still amazed at the level of details compared with my D300 and D700 bodies that I used to shoot that full spectrum.

When I see a note from someone saying they cannot shoot the D800/e in situations that they can with a D700 or D300, I just smile...because I know it can be done. I do it every week. Did it take me a while to master the D800? Yes. And it is worth every second of that time.

The first 14 birds in flight images you see at the following link were shot hand held:

You cannot match the details you see there with lesser Nikon camera bodies.
