THE FULL PICTURE
The Nikon D800 is now at the very top with DSLR bragging rights of a neverbefore 36.3 megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor and a host of features that are, without doubt, best-in-class. We tested the D800E, which has a different optical design to ensure that light is received by the image sensor at a single point, making the pictures taken with it boast a higher resolution.
The D800E is a largish DSLR and can be quite a handful for people who are not trained in using one. So Mr Amateur Photographer, this is not the camera for you. We recommend a medium level of expertise to handle this camera as there are no scene-based modes or full Auto modes to make life easy.
