A couple of weekends ago I had the incredible opportunity to visit one of the industries major trade shows, CP+, in Yokohama, Japan.
As a Navy media person, it even counts as job related!
One of our main goals for going was to play with Nikon's 3 new cameras, the D4, D800, and D800E. I got a chance (after a 90 minute wait) to play with all three, and I just have one thing to say....
If you're planning on buying a flagship-line camera in the next year, buy the D800. This camera will do everything and does an amazing job at it too. As I see more previews and reviews come out I'm even more sure of my hands-on impression. Especially nice is the way the D800 now handles video. (MUCH better than prior Nikon VDSLRs)
If anyone has any specific questions I'd be happy to offers some hands-on opinion of it, and I've also got english & japanese copies of the product brochures if anyone would like a scan.
Anyone planning on purchasing one of these? What are you thinking of using it for?
