I have seen the comment in a couple of forums that the D800 (I assume referring to both the D800 & D800E equally) is a "hard" camera to shoot well. As these were responses in an existing thread the commentator gave no explanation nor was there any further discussion of this comment so I have no understanding of the supposed issue.

So I guess I'll ask the question straight out, is the D800/D800E a "hard" camera to shoot well? I really can't understand why. Is it because of the 36 Mpx sensor? Is 36 Mpx any harder to shoot than 24 Mpx, 16 Mpx or even 8 Mpx? Could it be that there are so many menu set up options that a "casual" photographer just can't handle all the options? Or is just bunk and the D800 series is no more difficult than any other pro level DSLR to shoot well???
