Great customer service, communication was precise about when the camera was available and when it was shipped. The Nikon D800 camera was the best I could ask for, as far as extreme 36.3 megapixels, I couldn't believe how detailed the photos were. It made up my mind on purchasing a new Nikon camera. I loved that you could use the higher resolution setting (ISO) for shooting in darker gyms (I shoot sports) and the photos had no grain as high as 12,800 ISO. It gave me the benefit of shooting at 1/2000 @ f/2.8, when my old Nikon had terrible grain at 1/400 @ f/2.8. Photos were amazing. I can see this camera taking the place of medium format cameras in studio settings.

The Nikon D800 Digital SLR Camera features a 3.2” LCD screen, 170º viewing angle, 100% frame coverage, and an EXPEED3 image processor. The high pixel count, FX (full) format sensor produces exceptionally sharp, clean and well-saturated images. The D800's Live View function is useful when shooting in a studio setting, especially when access to an external monitor is not available. The large MP count produces files up to 7360 x 4912, which is great for print work, commercial assignments, and portraits. The D800 captures images and video in both FX and DX format, giving extra versatility to how you use the sensor for your particular shooting need - DX mode for photography gives your lens a little extra reach while DX mode for video uses an image area similar to 35mm movie film. You also have the option of shooting time lapse photography and save it as a movie file all in-camera. Take advantage of Nikon's native Creative Lighting System by firing off-camera flashes with your built-in flash and controlling external flash power directly from the menu. This camera is ideal for studio shooting, lifestyle shooting, portraits, commercial work, landscape, time lapse, and videography.
Borrow Lenses customer service is the absolute best! The Nikon D800 is quite simply the best dslr ever produced. The noise performance is unmatched for its resolution size! I rented this D800 because ever since it was released I wanted to see how it performed and if it was able to live up to the paper specs. It does!! This camera is a MUST HAVE for anyone! The burst of 4 frames sounds slow, but you get 6 with a battery grip and while shooting it seems like its enough for me. I conducted a low light and high iso test between the Canon 7D and the D800. Here is the link, enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8QInC9w1l8
I have my trusty reliable D200 that I've been using since 2006, and I love it. I am however starting to outgrow it, and I thought I'd try out the D800 without paying the full price of entry to have a better idea of what I like and what it available in the marketplace in terms of performance. At first the interface is a bit confusing - it's put together better, and the highlight preview was disconcerting at first, but in terms of helping me take better pictures, after only a few hours of using it I was definitely reconsidering my desire to turn it off. It performed well with my PocketWizards and SB800. I only had DX lenses to use so was afflicted with cropping, which took me a while to get used to - something Nikon has addressed by having a DX sensor crop frame in the viewfinder. I was unable to get the full 36MP out of this camera during my time with it, but it's high-ISO/low-noise performance compared to my older D200 was STUNNING. The addition of video and live-view is just a bonus in my opinion - I can't wait to get one full-time. If you're using a D50/D200 or similar platform, you won't be disappointed with the performance of this camera - just spend a bit of time with the manual.
