Shot the new D800 today. Weather was crappy but was happyu with the early results. Went bacl to a few places I shoot during bad weather to see how it handled. Seen a improvement in Dramatic Range and White balance straight out of the camera. Off to a good start. JIM

Yep, those places do have a familiar feel to them. Merry Christmas!

I will be watching to your learning of your new gear and after a bit, any thoughts you have on it.

Like any new equipment [took me close to 6 months to figure out my D700] it will take time to work through the small improvements before giving a proper review. The focusing appears a light faster and sharper with my high end lenses, which they talk about on different forums. Need to run the camera through a number of test shots and then will update the group. JIM

No doubt it will take time to get to a decent opinion. My goodness, I read reviews sometime that go like - well I just got this ____ (camera, lens, thing), yesterday and it's really great...blah, blah, blah.

My pro landscape photographer friend here has just converted from Canon to Nikon (after some 20+years) and gone with the D800e. He is liking it a lot.

Looks much like what you did with your previous camera, may it rest in peace. Great results! Can't wait for the good weather to arrive. :D

Hope it feels comfy in your hands :cam:

Thank you guys and I am looking forward to sharing more images with my new camera. I have so much to learn with this camera and after a few months I will update you on my thoughts. Takes that long, or more, to get comfortable with a new camera like this. Watch for new psots this weekend. JIM
