The Nikon D800 arrived at my door steps some days ago. As a late adopter none of the classic problems whatsoever (no left sensor issue, 10pin seems sturdy so far, no freezing of the software). Serial is 6097xxxx. Will do some testing at the next weekend (Eastern). Might be the next illusion of “the last camera” we buy. But first impressions are very good. With a Lexar 1000x the buffer seems to be ready as fast as with the D3. But compared to the D700 the ergonomic changes are a head scratcher. Mmh wait … the pixels, yes sooo plenty – resolution at service. But I have more to comment in a week or so.
So long, Sören
