    nice shots rain5533.
    for me, the noise improvement from D700 to D800 is too little to notice. did you shoot in raw or jpeg?

    Just switched on my D800E for the first time , after charging the battery . I put my "old" 2Gig CF card in,which I used on my D700. The counter says 17 Pictures ...right , 17 . Need to get bigger cards, haha ;-)

    This is what you see when you have a dx lens mounted and the dx crop activated, notice the rectangle

    Picture is taken with my iPhone through the viewfinder

    The color reproduction of the photo of the bridge with blue skies is very nice. The rest, the colors look flat, and with crushed shadows. Did you turn off the lighting optimizer or whatever you call that function that balances the shadows & highlights.

    For those of you who came from D7000 or other crop sensor camera, may I ask whether there's a big difference in IQ when shooting the D800 in crop mode using the same lens? What's the largest RAW file size when shooting in crop mode?

    The IQ will be almost the same as a D7000. I believe it's about 30mb for 14bit uncompressed RAW.
