Yes, I've had plenty of issues with metering during our recent string of crappy weather but AF isn't an issue.

glad you went with the 810. Getting the 800 is like just repeating your past history. you got rid of it for a reason.

Previously, when I got the D800, I had intended to make a full system switch - to replace all my Canon gear with Nikon gear. Owning two systems didn't make sense to me, yet I found I couldn't let go of my TS-E lenses, so I retreated back to Canon. Now, for some reason - probably a mental shift caused by the a7R - I no longer have that mental hangup.

now, let me quote these... :lol: :lol:

hehe. :lol: For sure, the decision to get the D810 has serious ramifications for 2015 gear purchases. Like that 100-400 II. As much as I would love to have it, it's now fallen off my list. As has the a9 - unless it's truly amazing. Still hoping for something amazing from Canon in 2015 though. :)

I picked up a D810 from Amazon.ca last week, and it finally arrived. Here's a quick snapshot I took on my way home last night (New Year's Eve):

I spent about 7 hours this weekend on the Mississippi shooting Eagles with my D810, 300 f/4 and 80-400G.

How is your experience so far? Glad you did it? Seriously thinking of doing the same myself.

Excellent series! How do you like the 80-400? It looks like it focuses extremely well.

Thanks. I do like the 80-400 even though I prefer shooting with primes. I'm interested to see how it compares with the new 300 f/4.

Went to my local camera shop in Madison WI today to check one out. Nice camera but just doesn't fit well in my hand. Hand literally started to cramp up on me.

Yup, but I may be able to get past it! Too nice of a camera to not at least try!
