    I have the D800 and LOVE it! Especially now that Lightroom etc. has caught up with being able to recognize and handle the files. Although I consider myself an 'enthusiast' and most would think the D800 is too much camera for my skills. I really wanted something I could grow with. The price of the D4 was prohibitive especially since it meant new memory card format and new memory card reader etc.

    So far i only have prime lenses Nikon 50mm, 60mm and 85mm but the resolution allows me to take a photograph and crop the heck out of it and still have a useful, detailed image.

    The D800 wish list.
    1. Tethered Shooting (will need to revisit now that Lightroom has gone through an upgrade)
    2. built in wireless technology
    3. Network capability

    Bottom Line... no buyers remorse. Love it a lot, and enjoy ThatNikonGuy.com Thanks!!
