Hey there, it's been a looong time since I have posted here..

I just got my D800E...the resolution is truly amazing, I will show my findings later.

Right now I would like to mention the file sizes.

My 1st 200 images were shot at NEF (14-Bit, Lossless) amd JPEG (Large/Fine).

I put the Nef's on the primary CF and the jpeg's on the secondary SD card.

After 200 inages..

Average RAW file size: 46.658 mb (55.361 max, 40.469 min)

Average JPEG file size: 19.568 mb (30.691 max, 10.870 min)

I was surprized at how large the JPEG's were.

I really hate the feel of the camera without the battery pack, that will absolutely be my next purchase. After a F100/D200/D300/D700, all having batery packs, my D800E is lost without...and so am I!!

Great camera so far, no complaints other than the missing pack and can't find batteries..
