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. I will say though that I decided not to go with amazon, as although a good price (I see the price has rocketed?!
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.
Make sure you gey a USA version and not gray market
5 September 2014
Summary: The Majority of Nikon D800 series cameras sold here on Ebay are gray market cameras. the Cameras cannot be updated with firmware and Nikon has stopped supplying parts to gray market dealers to make repaires. The D800 -800E is an awesome camera if you want full use of the camera including the updates and issues to be resolved when they arise you need to pay the 3200 for the USA Version. On the origional box there will be the letter “U” after the 800 above the skew number.
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.
Not for casual snapshooter but hat a camera, good freebies

Summary: D800e is not for casual use, plenty of options that once learned really pay off in better photos. It has so many controls and options that instruction manual study is a must. Heavy solid. Pentaprism so much better than pentamirror of D5300 , shutter much quieter and so much faster than that or Fuji S3 my other cameras. Superb camera if you pay attention to use and think shoot. Package excellent, accesory grip battery holder worth a lot included free.
Summary: I purchase a refurbished D-800E from the Nikon store. It arrived with a cracked view finder shade. I returned it for a new one but was told they no longer had any D800 E's and were not ordering anymore of them. They shipped be a second refurbished one which also had a crack in the view finder shade. I don't know if this is a reflection of Nikon's products, customer care or the Nikon store itself. Very disappointing purchase.
