First off, I'm not a pro - just like to have fun taking pics! I took my new D800 out for a walk today in the nearby arboretum and all I can say is "wow!" I love the color and depth being created. This is definitely an upgrade from my D700 (and I loved that too).

The biggest thing I noticed is that shooting technique really does matter. Taking my time, steadying my arms, and generally going slow led to much sharper shots. I used to think this was important with the 700 (and it was). Now it's even more important.

I can't wait to play more!!!
