"RE: D800 Technical Guide"

I am rather curious about that list of lenses. They are all newer lenses, some with VR and some without (the very fast ones). The paragraph introducing the list talks about "sharpness", rather than "blur" although they are obviously related. Sharpness, however, may be independent of motion. I think the bottom line is that this camera takes everything to a next level at which lenses, computers, technique, knowledge of how your camera works, etc., all need to be at a matching level to get the best out of the camera.

I still think this entire "technical manual" (which it really isn't) is all about "please don't send your camera back to us because you are getting lousy results."


"With cameras like the D800E, which are suited to visually
complex subjects, it is important to get as much sharpness
from the lens as possible. Contrast at the periphery of the image can generally be increased by choosing an aperture two
or three stops from the maximum, although results will vary
from lens to lens. Below are some of the lenses you can use
for enhanced sharpness:"

AF-S NIKKOR 14–24 mm f/2.8G ED
AF-S NIKKOR 24–70 mm f/2.8G ED
AF-S NIKKOR 70–200 mm f/2.8G ED VR II
AF-S NIKKOR 16–35 mm f/4G ED VR
AF-S NIKKOR 24–120 mm f/4G ED VR

AF-S NIKKOR 24 mm f/1.4G ED
AF-S NIKKOR 35 mm f/1.4G
AF-S NIKKOR 85 mm f/1.4G
AF-S NIKKOR 200 mm f/2G ED VR II
AF-S NIKKOR 300 mm f/2.8G ED VR II
AF-S NIKKOR 400 mm f/2.8G ED VR
AF-S NIKKOR 500 mm f/4G ED VR
AF-S NIKKOR 600 mm f/4G ED VR
