I am so far, impressed.
I took my first photo of one of my cats. While viewing on the camera, I pushed the zoom in button EIGHT times to see the cat's eye! Wow!
Solid, feels sturdy.
The shutter click is softer. With my 28-70 on it, the shots of the cat were crystal Lear.
They included a plastic "thingie", which turned out to be a USB plug holder for plugging in the cord to the side of the camera. You can plug in the USB without it. It just seems to function as an additional sturdying implement. An awkward one. I think I will not use it.
What's this little yellow thing in the battery compartment - packing material? Looks like it may fall out. You can see the spring. Hmm...
So far, overall impressed.

Welcome to the world of D800! Oddly enough, when I got my D800 the very first photo I took with it was...of one of my cats, also with a 20-70mm lens attached! Cats are very photogenic...I'm sure you will love the D800 - it's awesome. Are you going to share your cat picture with us?

It ain't so much the things we don't know that get us in trouble. It's the things we know that just ain't so.
Why is this thus? What is the reason of this thusness?

i love this cam too Raw files are more "flexible" in post-processing than my d7000 . Mine had some issues with left pointa AF fixed by nikon service . As landscape photographer didn't bother me much With or without AF points problem is a great cam A demanding cam that require good glasses ,tripod mmounted , cable release etc
