…I like your idea, and the attribution of attributes:
Whereas the D800 and D800e are female bodies that are: - Lighter >>>> I like the heavy tools (tool is masculine, right?)! So I got the MD-B12 and filled it up with 8 rechargeable batteries. - Easier to manhandle >>>> Now it is! …and not so far way from the layout of my D3S/D3X line-up - A bit slower (I am ducking here) >>>> well, 36MP, as other things do, require compromises and concessions… - High in noise under the right/wrong circumstances >>>> I have yet to experience that one, mine is a new relationship… - Greater in depth and creativity >>>> please explain this attribute as how it will differ from my D3S/D3X line-up - Require gentle handling to produce the best results >>>> yes, I discovered that some fiddling is appropriate! - Require more time to reach optimum performance >>>> yes, but it's well worth the effort - Can produce false results if not handled properly >>>> Indeed, but this does not apply only to this set of attributes
At this point in time, I developed a good partnership with my 800E, I can even shoot handheld now that I have accepted the required compromises and concessions.
