My D800 arrived with no appreciable defects, no focussing issues. My wife and I went out on a catamaran on the San Francisco Bay during Fleet Week.....there should be some great photo ops here. I took my D800 with a 500mm f4 lens, thinking I could get great photos of the Americas Cup boats racing. My wife took her D7000 with a 300mm f2.8 lens. I think the net result was a tie. Yes, the D800 makes large, beautiful, detailed images, but the D700 with that lens has almost the same reach. It was able to focus faster and better on the fast moving aircraft. As a result, my wife came home with more good images than I did. Please see our website,

Maybe the choice of lens is more important than the camera body!
