I was curious when I read Thom Hogan's new D800 book that he did not dwell on hyperfocal distances/charts. He barely mentions it. However, I just read an interesting article that he wrote on hyperfocal back in 2010 as seen at:
http://www.bythom.com/hyperfocal.htm

On a Nikonians trek to AZ earlier this year, our guide would call out hyperfocal distances for folks if they gave him their aperture and length of lens (he was reading the distances from an ap on his cell phone). I have since added three such hyperfocal aps to my cell phone, and I use them for zoom lengths up to about 50mm.

My question is: what have you folks experienced with hyperfocal distance use with the D800?

Do you use it and does it produce acceptable results for prints as large as 24" to 36" (max dimension)?
