This post is aimed at those who use (or have used) both D800 and the D4.
Now that things have had time to settle and early production problems are mostly resolved. I’m curious how people are faring hand holding their D800 & D4.

I have shot 20K+ images on my D800 and find a shutter speed of 1.5 x focal length is manageable, but sometimes use 2 x focal length to be on the safe side.

I curious how those who shoot both the D800 & D4 find how their D4 compares in this area? Can/do you shoot 1/1 x focal length and get sharp images?

I'm seriously thinking of buying a D4 and this information would be very helpful. I only shoot weddings and find hand holding D800 can be a problem when I want to use lower shutter speeds.

Thanks
