Saw that video yesterday. I've quite possibly got some Nikon in my future and they've been coming out with some nice lenses lately, really glad to see a G version of the 1.8.

ooo, you should mark this NSFW. Some might not approve of D800 on D800 action. jk

VR II. The nameplate is usually the give away. The VR I was a gold plate vs the black one here located on top.

Nice. I am sure the VRII brought this lens to up to the level of the Canon 200L f2 IS. Now that was one sweet lens. Miss both of those lenses! :)

I think the VRII's largest improvement was flare, wasnt that the big problem on the Mk1???

And id love a 200mm f/2 of any type ;)

I want. I was thinking about my lens line up and this one would be in it too. ;)

So, it would be the 14-24,24-70, 85 1.4, and 200 f2. Forget the 70-200 VR 2. :p

Wow, the detail in those hi iso shots are awesome. I always liked the grain better in Nikon than Canon. I would love to change but its too late for me and I am just too used to Canon. I just don't know how I could change because there are so many reasons against it but I will continually lurk here. I wonder how much detail would be left in shadows with these new bodies but great to see these examples.

And we can still down sample it to 12MP to further reduce the noise. :D

Yeah pretty nice. I switched to Nikon and I owned about $15K worth of Canon stuff.

I gotta say..I'm tempted to change....Though what would you guys say...Better to say..downgrade to a D7000 at first and invest in some glass or pony up to the D800 from the start...
