While camping this weekend, my wife sent me into town to get groceries. On the way back, I stopped where locals told me about a eagle's nest. I was happy with my first D800 field tests

They say "a poor workman blames his tools". What about the opposite? The autofocus on my Nikon D800 is good enough to track a blackbird in flight. It makes me look good. More than 9 out of 10 images were in focus. Never seen that before.

The other unexpected bonus: With a 36 MP sensor, I can crop images out of the corner to simulate the field of view of a 600mm telephoto lens - and still have 14 MP left. Fascinating.

I don't have the patience to be a nature photographer. The D800 lets me fake it.
