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

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.
