Hello:
Look, I know this will be debated for monts here, but here's my take on the D800.

Yes, initially, it sounds great, but....I'm a low light shooter. That's why I bought the D700, and the D3s. I shoot high school sports (crappy lighting) and small weddings....mostly in small churches or evening back yard ceremonies (also crappy lighting).

Now, I no expert by any means, but even I can figure this out. Both new cameras took ISO cuts in order to accommodate the increase in MP.

And.....the D800 took a pretty hard hit in FPS as well. It dropped from 8fps to 4fps????

All I'm sayin' is if you are like me and shoot a lot in low lighting, I wouldn't get too excited about the D800 and sell my D700.....just yet.

Yes, I would like a new camera too, but at least for now, I'm sticking with what I got!!!

'nough said.

Rich
