Dear all, thanks for letting me share my excitement about my gift. Given the forum chosen, you guessed it is a D800.
A fantastic thing happened today. One of my dream is to take some pictures of foxes which I find to be beautiful animals. Until today, I never had a chance. The neighbourhood I live in, next to a forest, is home of quite a few foxes at night that are attracted by the garbage. I never saw any during daylight.
Late this afternoon, I was writing an email in the living room and observed some movement in the garden of my neighbour. I just had time to grab my new D800, fitted with a Nikkor 70-200 VRII, and silently walked towards the hedge where I was able to get those pictures.
Image my happiness, in the same week I got a D800 and literally inaugurated it with a fox pictures
Whatever excuse works for you. My D800e was a gift from my mother. Actually it was part of my share of her estate after she died 6 months earlier. Thanks Mom!
