Summary: I love this camera, Resolution and DR are nice to have. Unfortunately I decided to sell it because it is just too big to use a walk around camera. I purchased a 6D instead and I am very satisfied with that.
Summary: Before this, I owned the D600. I thought the D600 was one of the best cameras ever created, and that it was even better than the D800's. Boy, was I wrong. This camera has taken my landscape photography to the next level. This camera, combined with the 14-24mm lens, brings an unprecedented level of sophistication to my photos. The amount of detail and color captured on top of what the D600 has to offer is just stunning. I highly recommend this camera.
Excerpt: A most excellent camera; thought about going for the D4s but couldn't justify spending $6500 so took a step down and, after looking at specs and reviews, decided on the D800E... and it was a great choice.<br /><br />I moved up from the 14MP D2Xs so it's taking some time to get used to 2 1/2 times more resolution and the pros and cons that go with it.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Summary: You can find the specs on this camera all over the internet, but I'm here to tell you how well it's built. While riding my bike with this guy attached to my Cotton Carrier I decided to do something stupid, which threw me over my handle bars and into the bike path pavement below! It was a hard fall.
The only ***state of the art*** Nikon body now offered.

Summary: This is the ONLY Nikon body I would recommend. With OEM lenses (24-85mm, 105mm macro & 70-300mm) and with a Sigma 12-24mm manual lens, I can cover the whole 12-300mm spectrum. If the camera/lenses were smaller and lighter and weather-sealed , this would be my only camera. So I also use Sony A7 & A7r with various Leica, Canon & Voigtlander manual lenses and with the 24-70mm Zeiss lens and a Pentax K-30 weather-sealed camera with the 18-55mm kit lens and various (from 28mm...
Summary: I absolutely love this camera pack. It also came with the lens that I wanted plus much much more! This is really the all in one pack and you can't go wrong with this purchase. The shipping was also extremely quick.
Summary: This is a remarkable camera. There is much discussion in all kinds of groups on the pros and cons but the reality is that this camera exceeds the skills of the people who claim to have problems. It is capable of detail beyond any other DSLR out there currently and the "sharpness" problems reported are due to poor technique that was not visible in other digital images. I have used them all and this is by far the best option under $20K.
Summary: My main reason to buy this camera was the video capability. I actually own a D3 but it doesn 't do video. I really like the D800E size and weight and the pictures are also very good. Need to be careful if you select fine resolution because the picture MB could be on the large size.
