Summary: I love this camera, Resolution and DR are nice to have. Unfortunately I decided to sell it because it is just too big to use a walk around camera. I purchased a 6D instead and I am very satisfied with that.
Excerpt: I'm mainly a landscape photographer, although I do portrait and other types of photography. The D800e, esepcially with great glass on it (like a Sigma 35mm F1.4) is capable of unbelievable resolution and detail. I find myself cropping a 10% area of the full RAW file and still having fantastic image quality. It is a beautiful camera to hold - solid, artful and precision engineered.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality
Cons: Lack Of User State Recall, Mediocre Screen Colour, Won't Work With M3
Excerpt: This is the most uncomfortable and difficult to handhold dslr I've ever used. I have owned several Minolta and Nikon film cameras, 3 Canon dslr's over my 30 years of photography. Fortunately, it is for use in my studio and always on a tripod. Image quality is outstanding. LCD needs an update. Hope one day one of the manufacturers find a way to integrate their technical prowess with human ergonomics and mental functioning (menus systems).
Excerpt: It's a very good camera, sharp and no focus issues for me. Got if for about a week, and so far so good with my 105macro and 50 f/1.8g. Heavy, build quality should be good, but finish is not as good as nikon F series film camera. Moiré do exist in direct sunlight. By using this camera, you need a super fast memory card, otherwise it will slow your shutter speed.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality
Excerpt: The Nikon D800E provide top quality results. Note that using a tripod is highly recommended if you would like to benefit from the high resolution and deliver pro quality prints. The camera menu is somewhat cumbersome and it takes time to get used to it. I think Nikon can remove all the basic file editing functions and make the menu system more simple and more focused on core functionality.
Excerpt: Images are really sharp, but you'd need to pick the best lenses otherwise the results can be disappointing. My picks are 16-35mm f4, 50mm f1.8, 85mm f1.8, and 70-200 f4. All great, sharp lenses and work well with this D800E. So far have not yet to see any issue with moire. Images taken with this camera, with the right lenses, you don't have to work hard in post processing.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Cons: Noisy shutter, Rattle Noise Flash, Short Battery Life
