As I eagerly await the phone call announcing that you will become part of my family, I wanted you to know that I am making special preparations for your arrival. I ordered Sandisk Extreme Pro SDHC and CF cards - both 32GB - to sate your voracious appetite. I assure you there are plenty of 8GB and 16GB cards to snack on, too! I purchased an extra EN-EL15 battery to give you an extra boost of energy in case you wear down. I even confirmed that the new battery isn't on the recall list so no harm comes to you. I ordered you a custom fitted L-bracket from Really Right Stuff so you can fit snugly in the Markins ballhead clamp on top of the Gitzo carbon fiber tripod.
I cleared out a comfy space for you in the ThinkTank roller bag.
So, I am ready for you. Your lenses and flashes await your arrival. I'm just waiting for the call so I can meet you and bring you home. Please hurry- the anticipation is agonizing!

D800 how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
Great dynamic range and colours.
Ability to crop and crop and crop again if needed.
Fast accurate autofocus.

Ha, I was thinking exactly the same thing! Except now i'm beginning to wonder if that call will ever come, 7-8 weeks ago I ordered it. I had an email from supplier (Jessops UK) the other day apologizing for delay but they have no idea when they will get stock. What I do know is there was 200 in queue before me...
