Since we are starting to describe high-end Nikon bodies by their sound and feel, let me throw another monkey wrench into the fire. Why don't we assign genders to Nikon camera bodies. Let me explain.
I think of the D3 and D4 series of bodies as males. They are: - Heavy - Fast - Low in noise - Can withstand amazing torture and keep working - Totally reliable - Predictable
Whereas the D800 and D800e are female bodies that are: - Lighter - Easier to manhandle - A bit slower (I am ducking here) - High in noise under the right/wrong circumstances - Greater in depth and creativity - Require gentle handling to produce the best results - Require more time to reach optimum performance - Can produce false results if not handled properly
By the way, I favor the female bodies in case you are wondering (I hope this translates properly into Russian).
