Summary: Could be too much camera for me, but didn't have much choice at time. I do think I like the old-school controls, compared to the newer d750 or 7000. Lots of people seem to be jumping ship to mirrorless makers, for weight and size, but I like the proven Nikon dslr lenses despite having to change them...
Pros: High pixel count, great video quality, good battery life even with external gps, works well with inexpensive battery grip if using the live view more. can zoom live view to focus video, face detection focus mode works well for video. Love the controls, that are similar to d300 for me, which I was...
Cons: Very heavy. especially to carry all day, specially with grip. Size can be intimidating to your subjects but they get used to it. Very difficult to focus hand-held, sharp/without blur compared to D300 due to higher pixels and heaviness of camera and it's more apparent when reviewing later than on ...
Summary: I did not purchase this kit, but seeing this bundle made me absolutely furious. Who on earth sells a full frame (FX) camera and then bundles it with DX lenses (lenses for crop sensor bodies). This is the most pointless D800 kit I've ever seen. Do not buy this.
Excerpt: I received my refurbished D800 from Adorama in like new condition. Shutter actuation count was incredibly low at 352 actuations. All accessories, manuals and related items were brand new. What a fantastic deal and wonderful way to purchase an essentially brand new camera at a significant savings.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Quiet
Excerpt: This camera is AMAZING! Why did I wait so long to upgrade from my D7000? I was skeptical of the ISO performance before I purchased it, and I am very happy to report that this camera is absolutely incredible at high ISO!
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance
Stunning Images and Less Expensive than the Competition
9 July 2014
Summary: This is the best DSLR I've ever used. I feel like I'm shooting medium format. The image quality is remarkable. Of course I'm using the best glass nikon has available so this makes a difference!
Pros: Breathtaking images and a classic form factor
Excerpt: I use this camera for everyday professional usage and to capture images for my own personal use as well. I am a professional photograph and love this camera. It works great in low light environments as well as studio and outdoor usage.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Summary: it attracts way too much dust on the sensor. My D200 was never this bad with dust. Granted, I'm changing lenses quite a bit (6 of my 7 lenses are primes), but the sensor cleaner DOES NOT WORK AT ALL!
