Since I accidentally dropped my D700 into the sea a few days ago I will maybe upgrade tomorrow to the D800.

So, I am now asking all you experts here if there is something special I should think of regarding shooting manually on a D800?


Unless you really need 36MP or 1/8000s shutter speed, the DF was made for shooting these excellent manual focus lenses. The DF has a "flip-up" Auto Indexing lever on the lens mount so you can use non-AI lenses on the camera. Non-AI'd lenses, as of right now, are a bit less expensive than the AI, AIS and AI'd lenses - unless it's a real collectors item. Plus, they just look damn sexy on the silver DF.

Actually, the D610 is also a good MF lens camera. Really, you can't go wrong with the D800/D810, D600/D610 or the DF. They're impressive little cameras.

Oh yes, my old D700 may now RIP. Waiting for a statement from the camera shop now so that my insurance can cover up...

Ok! Nampramos, I havent heard of the d750 until now. Sounds interesting. As I understood the D800 had big issues with the left focus problem in the first series. So for now I think I am going for the D800 with a newer serial number, well, if I like it.

But still it would be good with any kind of warning sign before I make up my mind :-) IF there are any.


I have the D800 and I am extremely happy with it ... not a day one buyer so all issues were resolved. I would advice to avoid being the D750 for this reason. Let others face all issues form the first batches of production like left side focusing or the white dot of the D800 and D810.

@craigjohn

Thanks a lot for the advice. But now I got very confused which camera I should buy. Well, the Nikon Df is a true beuty and I am a bit spoiled with the controls on the D700 so I don't know if I dare a D610...

But sill though the Df is very tempting, but more expensive, at least here in Sweden.

The D800 I will be looking at has done ca 7200 exposures and the guy selling it wants about 1900USD.

@Fpessolano
Thanks for the advice. Exactly what I thought of the D750 as well

I was pretty spoiled shooting the D3 and D3s for quite a few years. The controls on the D610 aren't that difficult to adjust to. If I can do it going from the D3s, anyone can do it making the leap from D700.

$1,900 USD is a great price on the D800.

Okej, I didn't know that. Then it probably is not as difficult as I thought. Still though, my mind I set an the D800 - and I just cant let it go...

I'm probably the one to set up reviews for lenses that few of us own, like the 200 f/4 Q.C. AI...


It is fun to pull out lenses and take a few photos of them. I honestly don't know whether there is a prescribed format for images, so this is just a shot in the dark. Ryan worked last night until midnight at the place that gives him a paycheck, then apologized for not doing something for NikonGlass that he'd promised. I told him "No deadlines..." This is play for all of us, so it will take exactly as long as it takes. What a relief...

And I also would like to see how your 35mm f/1.4 ais looks like. The one I have is a weird one..re built or something I think.

No drama here, just contemporary Finnish art displayed in my hometown:

180/2.8ED wide open - underestimated the power of the sun (hard to deal with the superbright right side)

and a take in color:

180/2.8ED at f/4 - played with a film-preset here
