I wonder if Steven Speilberg had his Transformers art directors help design
the D800. With the Porsche design group. It reeks with muscular take no
prisoners capability and sex.
We almost don't need to read the specs to know how good it is.
For us people already into Nikon ... its the spaceship which takes up the
whole sky. Like in V.

When the M9.5 comes out the D800 will be the camera to beat. Image quality
wise. I know there is an apples to pears aspect as its DSLR to Rangefinder.
That reminds me I bought an orange at Zabars just now for desert.
