Default Digital Photography Review Reviews the Nikon D800

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikon-d800-d800e/' target='_blank'>http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikon-d800-d800e/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"When the Nikon D800 was announced, the specification that got everyone's attention was - and to a large degree still is - the massive pixel count of its 36.3MP CMOS sensor. When a moderately-sized full-frame DSLR body aspires to go toe-to-toe with medium format cameras and backs at a fraction of their price, other attributes can seem secondary."</em></p><p><img height="508" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1336583785.usr15670.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="520" /></p><p>DPReview.com has reviewed the D800, and what can I say? It's a phenomenal camera. The 36 megapixel sensor is truly state of the art, and the camera built around it is no slouch either. If you ask me, this is the FX and DX camera of the moment. Shoot it at 36 megapixel for class-leading resolution, or downsize it to 12 megapixels to exceed the D700's performance. Shoot at 15.3 megapixel for a DX crop that beats the D7000. Now, if only I can find the money for it somehow. On a more curious note, I wonder why DPReview upsampled the Canon 5DIII files instead of downsampling the D800 files; usually that makes the image that is being upsampled look a lot worse. Still, great camera. Time to raid the piggy bank, I think.</p>

<drool> What a camera! DPreview is insanely thorough - a 29-section review? Wow. I'm still tempted...

You're not the only one! I do wish it was 5 FPS on FX and 8 FPS on DX though...
