Hi all
major disaster last week when D3X attached to a 600mm f/4 took a 15ft dive off a terrace.
Was insured, but am left without a body at mo. Not keen on going for another D3X when in theory it shouldnt be too long before replacement comes out. Has anyone here any experience with D800 after using D3x, specificaally for wildlife. Any feedback appreciated, either here or thru email

was in a lodge in Tanzania and very depressed when presented with amazing ops for shots but no camera,( came with bare min in hand luggage as was here for work)
