I confess to having something of a NAS affliction and have had a progression of Nikon bodies over time. Began with a D70. The D700 has been a great work horse and then a D3s which is superb - not wildly better than the D700 but a refined step ahead.

Now after 24 hours with the D800 I have to say: 'WOW !' what an amazing piece of technology. Looks, feels, handles just as you would expect a Nikon sibling to do - but with a new level of refinement ... and I have only scratched the surface.

The images I am including are untouched, except for reducing them to 1,200 pixel width. The full images then a 1,200 pixel wide crop from each image (approx)and saved to the 300kb max - so detail is considerably reduced but it illustrates my point.

Taken from a ferris wheel, so shot through plexiglass too. Location: Fremantle, Western Australia.

I will let you judge - but I am in awe of the detail retained in each crop.

Excellent Nikon. To think I was considering a 2nd hand D3x at a considerably higher price recently - worth the wait.
