We are largely in agreement. However, I am just about certain that a LOT of ingenuous buyers will unbox their brand new D800/800E and promptly photograph a LOT of badly focused, badly exposed, thoroughly unsatisfactory images.
This brief but excellent D800/800E Tech guide easily could have been entitled in big red letters: WARNING! DO NOT GO HERE UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO DO WHAT IT TAKES TO GET QUALITY IMAGES!
