Nikon D800 Digital Camera Review
The Nikon D800 is one of the most-discussed cameras of 2012.
- The Nikon D800 is better than 77% of the interchangeable lens cameras we tested.
- It is better than 80% of the interchangeable lens cameras we have tested under $3,000.
- It is better than 78% of the DSLR interchangeable lens cameras we have tested.
- It is better than 42% of the professional DSLR interchangeable lens cameras we have tested.
When the Nikon D800 was first announced, there were some serious questions asked about Nikon's product strategy. Where the Nikon D700 was a fast-shooting full-frame body, the Nikon D800 and its remarkable 36.3-megapixel sensor were ridiculed for their focus on megapixels at the expense of speed. As the test scores began rolling in, however, it became clear that Nikon photographers had a serious winner on their hands. While the Nikon D800 isn't all that fast, its high-resolution image sensor provides photographers with flexibility that few other full-frame models on the market can match.
The Nikon D800 is available now for a body-only price of $2999.95. We tested the camera with the Nikkor 24-120mm f/4 lens.
