Just wrote my Amazon review on this product.

"I have a D800 that works flawlessly until I put this RF shutter release on. It works for a few minutes and then eventually the whole system locks up. I need to remove the battery and turn off the receiver to get it back. If I just remove the battery without turning off the receiver then my top LCD just blinks Err. When it works it's great but the lock-ups would turn anyone off of this product. Go a different route. "

That's unfortunate as it looked promising.

mguffin, love that train shot, tonality in it is excellent.

Thanks. I wasn't too thrilled with it until I converted to BW. And, as always happens, I wished I had framed it slightly different. I think the signs are too distracting.

Couple shots from walking around in Portland with some co workers. With d800 and 50mm 1.8g, yawn. The 50mm 1.8g is pretty sharp at 1.8 in the middle area. Corners not so much. Low lateral CA, it has crazy long. CA though. The new ACR is fairly decent at removing it if needed. It mostly goes away at f/4 or so. Corners don't get super good until 5.6-8. Bokeh is very pleasant and the AF is very fast.

The signs help tell the story. They support the notion of the need for transportation: destinations. They also provide location: somewhere in America. The woman is waiting for the train to pass. She has a destination to get to. People move. The train is in motion. The people on the train have a final destination. This is a great shot.

Here's a shot with a Mamiya 80/1.9 on a d800E.

Well I sold my 5D Mk II today, and I also got to hold a D800. It was at Best Buy, so I didn't get to shoot with it. I'm fairly certain that it will be my next camera, but part of me wants to wait and see if there is a D600.

Do you have something to shoot with in the meantime?

Micro 4/3. I'm most likely going to get the D800, but supply needs to catch up first.

it appears to be catching up fast. i got mine Friday, still running thru the set up/learn the buttons stuff (it's different), had to upgrade ACR today. It's early, but this might be the best camera I've shot with.

I already downloaded the manual and started reading. :lol: Best Buy has them in stock online, and the store near me said they would have them Wednesday. I don't really want to pay tax though.

Congrats Rick and WH. I agree about being the best camera. I love it. 5DII's are moving like fire on Ebay. I have never had so many watchers and fetched $1660. I couldn't get interest at $1500 here.

I couldn't get a sniff on here or FM either. I sold mine for $1500 cash locally, so I'm pleased since I got to avoid eBay/PayPal fees.

If you are still having a hard time getting a D800 ,I saw three units available at Arts and Craft. Just google Arts and Craft at Kingston, new york.

Same with me, I've listed stuff here and gotten no interest. List it elsewhere for a little more money and it sells. Weird.

Just picked up a D5100 and I really like it. It's like having a D7000 that can focus correctly. :p

The D7000 can't focus correctly? That's news to me and I own one! :lol:
