Summary: As the title says, you can't blame the camera now. I've had the D800E for only a short while. I previously owned the D900 DX format - I loved my D90 and had a great 3 years+ with it, but came to realise that if I wanted the very best I needed the 800e - I also upgraded my lenses.
Summary: This is a really fantastic camera! Go to DxOMark dot com and read more about it: they say the D810 is not really much of an improvement as far as picture quality and sharpness goes. The photos are fantastic. Read all the other reviews.
Summary: Absolutely awesome camera. Incredible dynamic range, handles like a dream and takes great pictures throughout it's native iso range. And 36 megapixels gives you photos with incredible resolution that has to be seen to be believed. Plus its weather and dust sealed and built like a tank!
Summary: Am very happy with this bod! My current bread-and-butter body. 36.3 megapixel does help esp. for shoot-to-crop jobs. But for those buying now... I'd suggest getting the D810 even with only 24 MP CMOS.
