I stepped off the cliff today. I ordered a D800 to come live with my two D700 cameras. I have vacillated for months, but came to the conclusion that criticisms built on the need for only the best lenses, on arguments about the impacts of diffraction, on the need to shoot everything with the support of a heavy duty tripod, etc., are somewhat like the debates centuries ago about the number of angels that could stand on the head of a pin. Just like when we saw a steady procession of better and better films pass our way in the 20th century, we are now seeing better and better sensors appear. And in each case, flaws in our techniques that were covered up by inferior optics, inferior emulsions and inferior processing, became more easily seen. I have decided that the D800 is inherently outstanding and it is my tasking to strive to use its capabilities rather than griping because it may expose my flaws. I hope I can live up to ITS expectations!
