I was at a camera store today, and the owner appeared quite knowledgeable.

One thing he said seemed at odds to what I have found. He said if you use a grip and D4 batteries with the D800, you get 5 FPS in FX raw.

I pointed out the manual said 4 in full FX, he stood by it, said that is what people are actually getting.

Has anyone actually checked? If I could get 5 fps in FX mode, I'd consider springing for the grip and batter and door and use the ENEL18s'.

Made me wonder (and the manual does say "average") if it will shoot 5fps for at least a couple seconds, maybe it's a data bus limitation but it has some ability to buffer?

Anyone try? Maybe shoot a running clock with hundredths showing?
