#314944 Wetpixel D800 review

Posted by ToddB on 20 August 2012 - 11:08 PM

Just got back from taking a D800 to guadalupe. I brought my D7000 along as well, in case the D800 didn't work out, but never wound up getting it wet. I only received the camera two days before departing and have never shot FX before, but I was pleased with how things went. It was a challenge, I did miss the extra FPS, and I definitely got fewer keepers than I'd like, but the detail in some of my shots where focus was spot on is just awesome imo. I'm sure the camera can do better as I get more familiar with it, and I think I'm set on selling my D7000. Below are a couple of the first shots I've gone through, all uncropped except the first slighty (its 34 MP). The b&w was @ 105mm. I brought 16-35 and 15mm, zen 230. About 75% of my shots were with the 16-35, but in hindsight after scrutinizing my shots more closely now on a big screen, I would have kept the 15mm on close to 100% of the time and just cropped in post if needed. I'm finding the 15mm images to be sharper and more pleasing overall.
