I pre-ordered a D800 and I have to say that the technical manual has made me a bit nervous about this camera. I have never seen so much emphasis on blur. Fortunately there was a little discussion about using the camera hand held, because I shoot about 70% of my shots hand held. The manual gives the impression that you will get a blurred shot if you don't use a tripod and focus using magnified live view at F8 with just the right lens. It was good to see references to high ISO and low noise in the technical manual, because it looks like we will need to be shooting at higher shutter speeds with this camera. I've been using a D300 since 2007 and rarely gotten a shot that looked blurred. I hope this camera is not limited to the studio or a tripod for landscapes.
