Truly great camera
I use this for bird photography mainly. The images it produces have an impressive depth of field and astounding degree of detail. There is some moire, usually on finer bird feathers under certain lighting conditions. I use it with a 300 f2.8 (+ 1.4 and 2 x teles) and, 50mm, 105 and 14-24 Nikon lenses. AF is sometime very hit or miss with birds in flight, though when it does nail it the results are superb. Of note, it records tonal ranges I would never expect in any digital camera. Controls are quite easy to use, especially the exposure comp whi...ch is easy to change in a hurry. It has more features than I can ever use (bracketing etc) and I get about 200-300 shots before needing a new battery. In all, I love this camera and have never enjoyed shooting as much as with this. It punishes poor technique though and this has really forced me concentrate on improving myself. Produces amazing images AF is sometimes poor under low contrast situations which is to be expected.
You can't blame the camera with this one
A magnificent effort. The Nikon D800e is a superb piece of equipment which handled well will produce better results than you have ever produced before. That assumes you are not using medium format or other very high end equipment. Even then, it will do many things as well but much more cheaply.
The camera is comparatively inexpensive. The lenses required to get the best out of it will quickly multiply its cost.
Unlike others I have no quarrel with the relatively slow continuous shooting speed. It is certainly fast enough for me. Then, I w...ill probably never be shooting fast sports. I agree that it is large but that is also not a problem for me. I use a LowePro 75 AW shoulder bag which fits it perfectly with a long lens attached. Another lens case can be bolted on. If you need any more with you a backpack is the go. Loaded up like that isn't like taking snaps with your iPhone but we can hardly expect it to be. A large and complex camera with a remarkably wide portfolio of capabilities.
