    ok, initial impressions are good

    it is ever so slightly smaller and lighter than the D700
    let me get some images to demonstrate


    i matched the hotshoe as best as i can

    Approx. Dimensions
    D700 - Width 5.8 in. (147.00mm) Height 4.8 in. (123.00mm) Depth 3.0 in. (77.00mm)
    D800 - Width 5.7 in. (144.78mm) Height 4.8 in. (121.92mm) Depth 3.2 in. (81.28mm)

    Approx. Weight (camera body only)
    D700 - 35.0 oz. (995g)
    D800 - 31.7 oz. (900g)

    you can see that the left side of the camera is smaller
    notice the angle of the shutter button and a new dedicated video recording button

    Wah... NS allow you to shoot with your own CF card ah?

    Just can't wait...

    If you had shot any in f/22... put up the full res one so that we all know whether we can severely crop for specific parts in the pic.

    the back



    main difference here is the bigger 3.2" LCD vs the 3" of the D700
    the Live view button and live view selector
    just above that is an ambient brightness sensor for automatic monitor brightness control

    Viewfinder Frame Coverage
    D700 - FX (36x24): 95 % Approx.

    D800 - FX (36x24): 100% Horizontal and 100% Vertical Approx.
    1.2x (30x20): 97% Horizontal and 97% Vertical Approx.
    DX (24x16): 97% Horizontal and 97% Vertical Approx.
    5:4 (30x24): 97% Horizontal and 97% Vertical Approx.

    yes you can select to shoot in different crop factor (see above)
    RAW format is only at full 36.3MP size, hopefully this can be selectable as well

    Viewfinder Magnification
    D700 - 0.72x Approx.
    D800 - 0.70x Approx.

    nope, the units there were prototypes, so the memory card door was sealed, my impressions was via pixel peeping at the 3.2" LCD

    the bottom



    notice the different battery door, the D800 uses a EN-EL15 Lithium-ion Battery (same as the D7000)
    while the D700 uses a EN-EL3e Lithium-ion Battery

    Battery Life (shots per charge)
    D700 - 1,000 shots (CIPA)
    D800 - 900 shots (CIPA)

    it seems that the rubber material was changed and now feels better.
    not tested but my guess is that if you load mov files on the card the camera should be able to play it back, making it into a movie player too

    let me dig out the pictures that i took

    the little details on the blus sign can still be read


    the 250% crop is a scene behind the glass windows, note that the text can still be read

    4fps does not sound like alot but you need to remember that this beast shoots 36.3MP



    now that is a big buffer

    and after all that, this is the summery



    this will explain the target market that this camera is aiming at
