If you listen closely, you can hear a choir of angels sing.
My dear, thoughtful husband upgraded my Nikon to a d800! I loved (love) my Nikon d90, and I milked that camera for everything it was worth. I pushed it as far as it could carry me, and it was time for an upgrade to fit my growing needs. I will continue to use my sweet d90 as a second body. Jack bought me the camera as a surprise. He teased me mercilessly for a week about having bought me a surprise, and then gave it to me Wednesday evening.
I’m over the moon!
There are so many things to set up. There is the novel of a manual to read. But, I’m already loving a full-frame camera, the higher ISO, and the 51 focal points! I need a faster SD card and am in the process of getting one before I can really get to testing.
I’m holding my breath, just a bit, regarding the tales of focus issues with this model, and I’m praying that my camera is fine. This upgrade was long awaited, so I just want it to be perfect.
I’m so very grateful to have this upgrade. If there are any d800 users reading here, I’d love to hear any tips and comments about your experience.
