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.
NIKON lost my D800 when sent to Service Center for repair
47 year Nikon Customer, soon not to be anymore., Nikon
7 December 2012
Summary: Camera was surrounded with a lot of hype, and does not live up to this hype. I ordered the camera when it was first released, and received it in April. Now its December, and I have used the camera a lot, when I had it.
Summary: This was my first full-frame and this is also my first review. I was expecting to be blown away after having used crop sensors for a long time. The image quality of the D800 is extraordinary, no doubt, but the copy I got (SN 308XXXX) had serious AF problems, and not just the infamous left AF issues.
Summary: Received mine on 11/20 (s/n 304x). The camera could not even focus at 1.4 or 2.8, ok in the center focus, bad on the far right, very bad on the far left. I tried different lenses with no luck. Is going back for a replacement. ***Update 11/24/2012*** Almost, but not quite.
Summary: I have been using Nikon products since 2006. My first camera was D70s and then D7000 and now this was my first full frame camera - D800. Today, if I compare some of photographs taken with D70s and D800, Few Photographs stands out better which were taken from D70s when compared from D800.
Summary: Well to start off, I've owned Nikon cameras for over 15 years. I still have my 35mm film Nikon F5, which to this day works perfectly. However, the D800 was nothing but pain and suffering. I bought one back in April, I used it for a while, and it had the dreaded focusing issue.
Summary: I've got my camera April 28th. After multiple tests with different lenses I found out that my camera has left focus issue. I decide to send it to Nikon service center because at that moment in many stores it was back order. June 3d I submitted sample pictures to Nikon NY, and now story begins.
Summary: Was on a waiting list for 3 of these d800 for several weeks got um and shot a NFL football game and what a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!! All the pictures from all 3 were out of focus sooooo bad that none were salvageable.
Summary: Problem, problem, problem, waiting for repair advisory or a new unit but Nikon doesn't want to accept it. The problem is approved by an authorized Nikon shop and they told me to send the unit to Nikon, NY.
