So that’s the D800
Posted on 7 Feb ’12 by Earl Moore
This photo was made as I came out of the main wooded area heading back to the car via the pathway you see in the distance. This is the end of my walk in the woods series, for now — of course there’s always future walks in the woods to consider.
Wow, interesting Nikon D800\D800E announcements. Not truly an upscale D700 or a derivative of the new D4 but something else, a class of its own and a bit narrower in it’s focus to my thinking. The numbering/naming would make you think it was an upgrade/update of the D700 but I don’t see it that way. Actually it leaves room for the D700 in Nikon’s FX series of cameras. The D700 is faster and should be far better in low light then the D800 and the D700 is far cheaper then the D4, if you can find one. I’ve got to believe with that many pixels and being full frame if there’s any weakness in your lens glass you’re going to see with this camera. Buy some more hard drives…talk about storage space for images.
I want to see the images and more of the D800 hands-on reviews before I would consider it. On my gear lust meter it’s running at about a 6.5 out of 10 at the moment.
