Ok,

It's been a while....the D800 has been in the market, lots of info, stories, problems, etc..but, like most things...they get resolved.......

Please try and admit your baby is ugly (LOL)...trying to hear from others on realistic specific items...I'll disregard issues are left focus, etc. etc. ...e.g. mechanical issues...those should eventually be fixed....will be looking to upgrade sometime in the next 12 months, if I decide to move...

Currently own D700, D7K, and all FX glass....

I love my D700 and find it hard to consider moving to anything else...but, I'm sure at some point, my vaccine of NAS will wear down when the credit card balances are drawn down (LOL).......

What I'm most interested in are:

1.) Do you find the ability to hand-hold and obtain great in focus shots? I do mostly portrait work and still life....no sports and limited street shooting

2.) How much do you find the computer bogging down with the larger files (ok, i know depends on processsor, memory speed ( I have a MAC Pro 8GB memory) I7, so, i'm not too worry abou this...but, just interested in how LR works with the files?

3.) Do you feel the investment is worth the return?

4.) For those who've made the move, e.g. D700 to D800, do you see a real difference in shot improvements....reason for my ?, when I went from my D7K to D700, everyone said my shots improved....don't know if it was me..or the camera, but, I also noticed a difference...thus the reason for my question....
