Few things you should know. Nikon only tested and certified Lexar and Sandisk to work in D800. If you use anything but you are on your own. I mostly use everything but Lexar and Sandisk. All I can tell you is that even similar cards would and would not work with this camera. For example 600x 64gb Topram works but 32gb version does not. So if you don't want to have any problems stick with Sandisk and Lexar.
