Does this mean the Nikon 800 that good?
Is the nikon that good -- in a word, no it isn't but I hoped it would be. The original guy who wanted my entire DF kit could not scrape together all the funds, and after the second day with the D800 I could see color, primarily reds and skin tones, were problematic. So I just left the pending on the DF and LS lenses in place since I decided to keep them, but am selling off the remaining little bits I don't use. The D800 is a great camera for hand-held shooting, but it has a way to go before it matches MF on color or can compete in a studio or landscape situation with the DF and SK lenses (or Hassy and H lenses).
