Default A year with Nikon ...

I've now had the D800 for just over 12months and in that time I've taken 7500 shots, most of them crap but at least I'm back out taking snaps. I think I made the right decision switching to Nikon and going FF, even though I did run into that weird focusing issue at the start but luckily that's not occurred since. I had thought that 36MP was overkill for a long time but now that I have seen what you get its still breathtaking the amount of detail that are in the files.

The 2 cheap G lenses that I got on day one continue to impress and the files from the D800 are still great so no complaints there esp at the prices that both retail for. I need to add the 180 F2.8 and hopefully should be picking one up soon. I'd like a 28mm or the 35mm to add to the collection.

I do miss the 4x3 format esp in portrait mode but the D800 has the modes to get around that and I need to start using it. Also wish the body was a little lighter but thats more than offset by the weight of the 2 G's. The duster buster seems to be working just fine so thats been really good.

Some pics over the last month via LR and un-cropped:

D800 +85f1.8 (Spectator @ over 40's England Hockey Final and Olympian Kirui of Kenya @ London Marathon 2018)

Two snaps D800 + 50mm 1.8G - In the city of London.

Hello HarjTT, Somewhere I can follow you in meaning missing the feeling of the E3. But stil the D800 is a great camera and I see that you handle it already pretty well. I will try to post some pictures within some months, time is a problem. Also W10 is a hell to work with, not stable at all, and importing images in Linux is not ever tried. Greetings, Pascal
One photo out of focus is a mistake, ten photo out of focus are an experimentation, one hundred photo out of focus are a style.

Nice pictures Harj,

The benefits of the FF system has a price and that is weight but it is worth it.

The B&W picture is fantastic..!!
