Bob,

Getting back to the topic of this thread, I believe that a lot of folks who are counting on the D800 to be a 'quick fix' for their now 'blurry pictures' they are getting with their 'poor resolution old camera', are likely to be very disappointed.

Because,
1. No matter 'how much money they throw at the problem' ($3000 - $3300), and

2. Even if they 'hire an Expert' (various D800 books, seminars,),

3. Even if they 'blame somebody else' (Nikon),

they are going to get the same blurry pictures with the D800, that they got with their 'old camera'. UNLESS THEY IMPROVE (CHANGE) THEIR TECHNIQUE, NOTHING WILL CHANGE. THEY WILL STILL GET BLURRY PICTURES WITH THE D800!

Albert Einstein has been quoted as saying, "The definition of INSANITY is, 'doing the SAME THING over and over again, and expecting a DIFFERENT RESULT' " While this idea would seem to be self-evident, it is surprising how many folks have NOT thought of this.

Rather, most folks expect 'instant gratification' without any WORK (a four letter word) involved. Indeed, many want 'something for nothing'. I believe that Nikon understands all of this all too well, and so in their first line of defense, have written the 'Technical Guide'.
