Hello Dan As one who will have one next week I am curious about where the mixed reviews are? I have not seen any that are not ecstatic about the camera. The pre-release predictions of being a highly specialized studio/tripod camera that would require extraordinary technique and glass seems to have silenced almost immediately. Is there something I am missing? Stan St Petersburg Russia
The D800E has certainly exceeded my expectations. Images are much sharper than expected and I have seen no sign of moire.
Probably the biggest challenges I had were with depth of field. Not really a problem, but when your subject is so sharp and you have a shallow depth of field, the out of focus areas are easily notices.
The high pixel count provides a tendency to needlessly zoom to 100%. I'm sure that I have good images under normal circumstances that I am rejecting due to slight softness at 100% - and that's a mistake.
