DPReview posted a preview of the D4...

I didnt know the D4 had illuminated buttons/switches! Thats a pretty awesome feature...

Next evolution: buttons that are OLEDs and can show custom graphics/text, particularly useful for mappable/programmable buttons.

Make it so.

That would be awesome on the D800. :)

Hey, they had to "cripple" something from the D4, right? :lol:

Another great shot in paradise!

You don't want to know what it looks like here although we actually hit 70 degrees yesterday.

:shock::shock::shock:

Do more, do more! Please put up the 25600 shot and others if you get to working on them.

Anything in particular? These are the same Nikon samples. If you get a chance to download them from that russian site and load up LR4 you really can see what both LR4 and the D800 can do. Everything from noise handling in LR4 to DR in the D800 shots are amazing.

I would shoot at any iso setting with the D800 and not worry about it. It makes me wonder if I made the right decision in going with the light sucking primes versus the "slower" 2.8 zooms for added convenience.

Here's the link to the photos:

Took me a few hours to download them. Windows users beware. ;)

I'm still debating LR4. Still seeing reports that it's laggy, and since I have an older computer (Q6600, 4GB RAM) that runs LR3 ok I don't want to get myself in a must-upgrade situation. If you're just doing some conversions for yourself I'd appreciate it if you could upload them to Flickr, but don't go out of your way.

I'll definitely be primarily scrutinizing the high ISO files. I have full confidence in the low ISO files (no shadow pattern noise, pay attention Canon :lol:), but high ISO is where I'm most interested. I've priced out a Nikon kit that includes f/1.8 primes instead of f/1.4 to save a ton of money, but that depends on the D800 being able to deliver at high ISO. Preliminary results say, "Yes," but I'd like to see more before really making up my mind.

Is the 70-300mm VR any good? I need a "going to the zoo" lens.

Yes it's a good lens. In most of the tests it either comes out top or second top, I've had a couple in the past and both have produced good results.

LR3 is laggy for my computer too
D800 is a very good excuse to upgrade my computer :lol:

I went through the big computer upgrade last summer when the new iMac's were introduced. I got it max'ed out, hopefully it goes a few years.

So I bit the bullet and bought LR4 upgrade and am ready to play with these RAW files. But, uh, is there somewhere else I can download this from that is in English? :) I have script blockers on for my browser and don't want to just allow all scripts to run on an unknown site just to download the file.
