I ordered an E today, they say 7-10 weeks...lolz

Least I might get one unaffected by the Left focus issue

How does the AF compare to the D300s (thinking action & tracking moving objects)?

Cheers

From my experience .... I would say the D800 has better AF than the D300s has. Then again, the majority of my subjects are not in motion.

Beautiful! I got my D800 last week and I'm loving it. I also got the chance to test video under a controlled lighting situation and was very happy with what i saw. Very clean even on a big screen.

I'm finding that with stills, I really don't need to do any more HDR work than I can do developing the RAW files in Lightroom 4. It seems like the sensor has HDR built-in, because it does.

David: Top icon (> Playback display options. 2ndly...that's all ya get in FX 4 lousy fps...5 in crop mode.
Wish they hadn't crippled it to consumer body #'s (for 3 freakin' K) but it is what it is and I've managed to work around it thus far. GL

Add a Nikon grip (around $500) and you get 5fps FX and 6 fps DX. Speed isn't its thing. You have a camera with a small battery and buffer, so, no sense lamenting its fps.

As my Daddy always said, "it is what it is."

I know that 4fps seems slow but do the math - 4 x 36 = 144meg/second. The D4 is 10 x 16 = 160meg/second. If the D800 was 5fps it would exceed the throughput of the D4! So I'm not sure it's crippled at all. When you think about it, 36 x 4 is a massive amount of data. Now, if the soon to arrive D600 is 24meg as the rumors suggest and has a frame rate of less than about 6 you might have a point.

Peace,

Todd

No, you don't That's DX (6 is possible using the right batts) FX remains at 4, regardless.

Thx, Todd...I now understand why but still don't have to like it

I've never shot a burst, so, I relied on a internet comment. Should know better.

Ok, thanks guys.... I thought it was capable of 5fps, but didn't realize it needed the grip to do it. It is what it is!
