Summary: Am very happy with this bod! My current bread-and-butter body. 36.3 megapixel does help esp. for shoot-to-crop jobs. But for those buying now... I'd suggest getting the D810 even with only 24 MP CMOS.
Make sure you gey a USA version and not gray market
5 September 2014
Summary: The Majority of Nikon D800 series cameras sold here on Ebay are gray market cameras. the Cameras cannot be updated with firmware and Nikon has stopped supplying parts to gray market dealers to make repaires. The D800 -800E is an awesome camera if you want full use of the camera including the updates and issues to be resolved when they arise you need to pay the 3200 for the USA Version. On the origional box there will be the letter “U” after the 800 above the skew number.
Summary: Before this, I owned the D600. I thought the D600 was one of the best cameras ever created, and that it was even better than the D800's. Boy, was I wrong. This camera has taken my landscape photography to the next level. This camera, combined with the 14-24mm lens, brings an unprecedented level of sophistication to my photos. The amount of detail and color captured on top of what the D600 has to offer is just stunning. I highly recommend this camera.
Not for casual snapshooter but hat a camera, good freebies

Summary: D800e is not for casual use, plenty of options that once learned really pay off in better photos. It has so many controls and options that instruction manual study is a must. Heavy solid. Pentaprism so much better than pentamirror of D5300 , shutter much quieter and so much faster than that or Fuji S3 my other cameras. Superb camera if you pay attention to use and think shoot. Package excellent, accesory grip battery holder worth a lot included free.
Summary: I have never touched or even seen a camera I like better than the D800E. Initial focus alignment problem was handled expertly by Nikon service. Images are astonishing, and I mean with any lens. My expensive lenses, and my less expensive lenses all perform better with this camera than anything else I have used them on. Some lenses require fine tuning and some don't, just like with any Nikon pro camera.
Summary: You can find the specs on this camera all over the internet, but I'm here to tell you how well it's built. While riding my bike with this guy attached to my Cotton Carrier I decided to do something stupid, which threw me over my handle bars and into the bike path pavement below! It was a hard fall.
