To me, the D800 seems to be cleaner than the D700. As I said before, I believe that the D800 is a fantastic camera. There two main reasons I’m not upgrading my D700. Firstly, I am not longer willing to sell a camera with a zillion actuations left in it. Lastly, I just do not want to handle the file sizes. I use LR and send my photos to CS5 to apply the different filters and plug-ins like Nik Software. Right now, I get around 12 MB per raw file + 50-80 MB for each Tiff file (I keep both.) I have no idea what it would be like with a 36MP camera, but they are not small not to speak about the degradation of my PC performance. In addition, I only publish on the WEB and if I print, they are only 8X11.
I have never read so much negativity about a product that is not out yet and no one has (or better said: very few, but very few have.) I have always been very critical of Nikon for not announcing their upcoming products several months ahead of the release date so we can plan if we know what is coming down the road. Now that they do…
