Things have evolved for me and the D800E has elbowed it's way into my #1 camera over the D4 during the Spring and Summer. Combination of doing zero theatre and video and doing lots of mostly staged wildlife (songbirds called in using tape playback and/or songbirds at feeders) and some travel. If I could, I would now change my vote from Landscape to Wildlife. Also, I am more and more bumping into to other Nikon wildlife shooters, and you guessed it, the D800 is a common platform these days. Great camera.

Anyhow, now that the seasons have progressed and fall migration has begun already, I am going to dig back out the D4 for it's responsiveness and speed in un-staged wildlife situations. Still not doing much theatre or video as I have been too busy at my day-job and something had to give...

I am very impressed with my D800E. Digressing but am worried about Nikon's financial situation. If you haven't bought one yet, get out there and purchase a D800

Best regards, SteveK
