Pros: Low ISO from fear

Cons: Slow machine, AF every now and then dancer too loud at high ISO

Opinion: A monster!! I had the D800 years ago, well at low ISO generates files that are a pleasure as long as you use resolute optics, it is difficult to find optics that fully solve all mpx of the D800, I used it with fixed such as 105 Nikon 85, 50 the micro-blur is a rumor , come out if you don't know how to use it, it is a machine that does not forgive., l I found it slow in operation, MAF good but not excellent, removed only because the noise at high ISO was really too much, if we consider that the car was costing on 3000 euros when output bhè... Would I buy it back? Yes but definitely the E version, which generates pariah files to that of the 810

Pros: Sturdy body and neatly arranged controls. Very high resolution. Battery life. Good level screen.

Cons: Often encountered serious problems of F/b focus (2 models out of 3 possessed). Huge and heavy files, needs the fastest memory cards and many hard drives. High weight of the body alone.

Opinion: I state that I had 3 and twice I had to face the problems of F/b focus. On all my lenses both zoom and fixed, I had problems and often the photos were to be thrown. Also sometimes even the micro moved was noticeable and annoying. When there were no problems the files were great, amazing details in the macros and crop that did not regret the lack of pushed tele. Sold all three for all the above mentioned reasons. If I found one without those problems, I would buy it again.

Pros: Virtually everything: resolution, color, detail, dynamic range, construction, robustness, efficiency, enormous malleability and "workability" of both the Raw and the JPG (and you could continue).

Cons: Practically nothing but the heaviness: an elephant in the neck if with heavy lenses and external flash (God save us with battery grip, which I don't anyway). At the moment it is "dated" species on functions like Live View (which also not even use).

Opinion: Eagerly desired and bought after heavy economies, he has been with me for almost six years. I struggle to find them real faults, and, personally, I do not match those that are commonly affixed. For example the susceptibility to vibration due to the mighty (and noisy-but I like it) shutter. When I get the blur, it's my fault. Even without special precautions on tripod (the rare times I use it), I do not get micromossi. Obviously, its powerful Raw from 36 mpx reveal to 100% every minimum defect and softness of each lens, but much is corrected by the firmware, and a lot is correctable via software (especially those who use modules optimization of individual lenses). And then, let's be clear, starting from files like that, you have to make really big prints to notice something, or it's all "razor sharp" anyway! Even if the press was huge, and revealed a clue of softness and micromosso, you should look with the nose on the paper, but who is watching a poster with the nose on the paper?!? The dynamic range is something fantastic, the headroom from Raw allows astounding recovers of highlights, as well as shadows. To the point that one could quietly shoot with strong exposure "to the Left" (the opposite of what many advise) and then raise shadows and blacks without obtaining particular damage (it is known that to do so with certain canon were obtained patterns from "kilt Scottish "Terrifying! But they should have solved the thing in the last models). The depth and the power of the color are extraordinary. You do not feel particularly the slight lack of sharpness compared to the model and especially the next 810: The details are so many, and respond so well to sharpening that you really have to resort to microscopy to find differences Significant! Some signal a certain noise at high ISO. And, especially from Raw, there's really some noise over the 3200, and it gets a lot from 5000-6400. But reducing it with good software, it still remains such a quantity of details (even in the shadows) that the shot, on large print, is virtually identical to the 100-1000 ISO band. Here too, to find differences it takes the magnifying glass. I have no problems even in different shots at ISO 12800 and even someone besides, here using techniques of "expose to the right", pulling down the exposure from Raw and maybe then using a good denoise. I would now be tempted to move on to 850, but finances do not allow, and also allow, sincerely there is no real stringent reason! Other point: The results are also dear with DX lenses! The Raw output can be "pulled up" up to 24 mpx (higher side led to 6000 px) without any significant deterioration! So it's like "containing" a 24 mpx DX of equal efficiency inside! By updating the firmware, it works excellently with the excellent 18-55 AF-P DX VR, and with the equally excellent 35 1.8. We try to find flaws: it is heavy. At the neck with two bison like the 28-300 VR or the Sigma 12-24, it's osteopath stuff... and after a while it can give the wrist cramps. It's flashy, noisy and indiscrey. It's "slow" (I personally though practically never need an ultra-fast "burst"). For types of photos requiring great speed (I think the edges of a circuit from Moto GP) certainly is not the best. But I don't do this kind of photo. It is now "outdated" compared to the latest Sony monsters (for one). But here are flaws that, at least as far as I am concerned, are virtually non-existent.

Pros: Dynamic range, colors, ISO seal, however perfect machine.

Cons: If we really want the noise when it snaps, it seems to shoot almost with a medium format film....

Opinion: Great machine, I use it to work, I must say that there is the problem of the blur, but also pulls out of the files that can be printed 1 meter for a meter and a half at full resolution, so we can not think of watching them from 20 cm, are prints to look at least 3 meters , so I would say that this big problem does not exist, certainly must be used carefully, the right times and the best optics, even if I like to pair it with old ais, I really like the yield, especially in portraits, then maybe in post should be worked with Sharpening. Compared to Canon, the Nikon sensor has a much higher yield as far as dynamic performance is Concerned. Canon at high iso, it returns a "dusty" image, I have both the one and the other house, over the years I spent a bit ' here and a bit ' of the, but now Nikon as sensor quality, is superior to Canon and not a little, in any case, everyone has their own tastes about. The color management is the usual Nikon, the dynamic range is such that the photos are contrasty and saturated, otherwise the raw files seem almost flat, I work there anyway quietly up to 6400 and I think even at 12400 iso, the photo takes you home tranquilament and, given what once you could do with film EO the digital until about ten years ago, even less. Used the is under the thousand, even with few shots, 36 mpx are more than enough for any use, besides remains only the medium format....... analogue!

Pros: Image quality/Ergonomics buttons/construction materials/Current price used

Cons: Autofocus

Opinion: In my possession for about a year I struggled to find a right Setup compromise for my use, with this machine mainly landscaping, then gave me many beautiful shots. I really appreciate its dynamic range, mostly I avoid shooting with less than 1/160 and coupled to the Nikon 24-120 I think an ideal pairing, I hardly ever use the VR lens since I do not fall under the Times described. For night landscaping or at dusk I almost always use the tripod + shutter delay exposure, by day the tripod is not indispensable. Given the difficulty in using, see Microblur + pixel density + noise, I was served much as a school to test the various situations and progress in my photographic knowledge. I recommend the purchase considering the price of the current used, I have seen around 800 euros, to those who want to refine their photographic technique. Positive vote on my part
