That's interesting.

I looked it up. You're right. My T2i was made in Japan, but the models after mine were made in Taiwan.

Darn tsunami. I hope that was it, because I hate to think of a bunch of folks in Japan losing a lot in one day from an earthquake, and then told their jobs are gone for good.

I hope the jobs return to Japan.

Some say that as long as the company maintains the same quality control standards in each of their factories that it won't matter where it's made.

I don't agree.

Simple solution, just buy all pro gear and then you know it comes from Japan. ;)

(of course parts are still coming in from all different regions. :p)

So D800 shooters, two cards or just one? I'm glad I was stocking up on CF cards a while ago, I'll probably need them now.

I grabbed a SanDisk 128GB SDXC from B&H when they were on sale a while back. No need for two cards with that. It's plenty fast enough.

Generally, Yes, they do

Pretty much -everything- is made in China for a reason, that reason being Labor cost...

Doesnt mean its put together any better or worse, Theres a big difference between domestic Chinese products (The stereotypical iPhooon made of very low grade plastic that is cheaply painted to sort of look like metal) and stuff for foreign markets (Like the iPhone, made of glass and aluminium!)

At once? Guess it depends on what/how you shoot. I always use 1 CF and 1 SD. I also have backup SD and CF cards. All Sandisk except for 1 Patriot LX and 1 Eyefi. None of my cards are greater than 32GB. This is includes 1 32GB Extreme CF and 2 32GB Extreme Pro SD cards.

Just picked up a used D700. Figured I would just throw caution to the wind and do it. Wasn't too happy with the focus system of my 5D2 or the frame rate. Hopefully all goes well. Going to just run primes since Nikon lenses seem to be pretty pricey for their zooms.

Any D800 users have the Nikon TC-14E? Any issues with it?

Going out shoot my first set of engagement photos tonight. Luckily it's just my brother and his fiancé who had no plans of even taking photos. So my nervousness is lower than it should be. Have been reading and looking at pictures basically every might tying I get ready. My only real concern is post processing. But that is the part that I can do over and over without taking up anybody's time.

All considered, I am excited to get out and try.

I think I have found a new friend. Color and detail that I have until now yet to experience in a DSLR. I love it.

^^Nice lens Jet. It's nice to know you're enjoying the D800E. Is the E version worth the extra sharpness? :)

Since having my 5Dmkii and all of my lenses stolen a few months ago I've been trying everything out and doing lots of research. I was an inch away from replacing with the mkiii but in the end the D800e won. I was very nearly put off by the temporary D3200 and 35mm f/1.8g combo as it was soft (to my eyes) and way too noisy, badly noisy. I had thought that some of the hype surrounding the D3200 was misplaced and wondered equally if the hype surrounding the D800 was also over the top.

Anyway, I got the D800e and took it around to my Dad's as he has a mkii and we compared shots with both cameras having similar lenses mounted on to tripods. Each using a 24-70 Canon/Nikon lens. The difference was breathtaking. I was expecting to be seeing similar results but just larger, i.e. with more resolution. I wasn't expecting the clarity to be so, so much better. Not marginal, not better but way better. Highlights took far more effort to blow out and the shadows were so good. The difference was so great my Dad went straight out and bought a D800 himself. He won't spend money on anything if he can help it. I can't over emphasise just how much better the IQ is.

I don't like saying any of this as I still love the Canon lens line up. If everything hadn't happened this way I would have got the mkiii as I had some great lenses and prefer the way the Canon bodies work. It's not easy learning a new system but then again getting comfortable isn't good. I really hope that Canon will fight back.
