Because of the ability of D800e to go higher ISO I no longer need top Pro lenses. The first 2 lenses I got 16-35mm F4 and 24-120mm F4 are absolutely fantastic. I posted some samples in another thread. Today I went to Pro Show in Pasadena and I saw a guy in the Nikon booth who I used to "harass" for many years at CES or PMA about how good Canon cameras are. Of course I don't do it anymore but I might start "harassing" Canon booth people now. BTW I did not see any even though they are on the list. Anyway, he did not really recognized me so I had to remind him. He suggested to try 28-300mm VR and said Nikon can't make enough of them. I don't know about that because price is coming down right now. So I tried it. I am impressed!!!!! As soon as I got home I found a sale at J&R for $939 and ordered it. Here are some samples. They are highly reduced in size. Originals are even better. I wish this lens was straight F4 but it is OK. I think D800 makes this lens even better than it is. All taken wide open and no sharpening in PP.
This seems to fly in the face of other posts claiming higher pixel counts in the new sensors actually revealed defects hitherto unnoticeable in non pro lenses. I am a bit confused. Care to unconfuse me?
Well, that's interesting, but rather academic to me. I highly doubt I will ever own a D800. $3K for the body alone is far beyond my budget.

I'm sure you are right there. It would be interesting to test my D7000 compared to my D70s. However the D70s is broken right now, so that will have to wait. Thanks for the info just the same.

I read many different things how D800 is different from all other cameras in terms that more care needed to get good photos. Example: more pixels means more camera shake. Hmmmm. The sample of the women leaning forward is at 1/25 at 300mm.
These are mostly ALL rumors. Or what I called Internet Magnification Effect. If anything, a good lens becomes better on D800 from my experience.
