Nikon D800

d800s
Review Date: Apr 22, 2012 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Amazing dynamic range, 5:4 mode, viewfinder, ergonomics, AF, resolution, ISO capability
Cons:
It doesn't have custom modes like U1&U2 like in D7000. FPS could be faster. Nikon doesn't have enough good lenses for it.

I have had D40, D200, D90 and D7000 before this. I do mostly nature photographing. Landscapes and birds mostly.

Mostly I changed because of the bigger VF and ergonomics. With glasses this camera is much better to use than my previous cameras.
AF is excelent. With Sigma 120-300 OS, I could hit and track BIF in so dark that I couldn't spot them with naked eye.
It's a really much better than highly regarded AF in D7000.

Dynamic range is amazing. D7000 had a good DR, but this is even better!

5:4 aspect ratio has began my favourite with this camera. It still has >30mp for it.

My biggest complaint is that Nikon doesn't have lot of really good lenses to choose from which can take most of that amazing sensor.
