    My son shows you all why Bob and I got so many similar images from our D810's on the Moab workshop:

    Of course there is the other retort about why the hell you can't find the missing workshop member (ok, I admit it, normally Graham) when you're all done shooting because he wants to shoot something different!

    It's not that at all Graham. When you go missing we're just concerned you may've followed some of your gear off a cliff!

    true and I appeciate it. The GF didn't appreciate this selfie as an example

    Re: Fun with the D810

    Its interesting to compare the D810 and the Sony A7r. Both are triumphs of technology, but to me, only the D810 feels and operates like a "real" camera. I probably use the A7r a lot more, but wish it handled and felt more like a small D810.

    Re: Fun with the D810

    I prefer the D810 by a fairly significant margin. AF, actual GG view, ergos, control layout and usability. I view the Sony as a good sensor I can adapt just about any lens to, and it doesn't take up much space in my bag.

    Graham. You and I seem to have an affinity for ledges, although I did tone it back somewhat on this recent trip.

    And I appreciate your restraint! I feel faint in the same zip code as an exposed ledge.

    And a tad more moody. These shots were all part of a shoot this morning for a project Alex is working on. D810, Sigma 85mm F1.4, shot outside, so I have left in a hint of the background.

    Well it is a very good camera - and after having not used it for a few weeks, when I did so to take some shots my son had requested, I realised just how well it handles, even with MB-D12 battery pack that I had attached. I had my Hassy nearby but its a brick in comparison to the D810.

    Looking forward to your first shots!

    Hi Steen,
    Thanks for your query.... I discussed it with my dealer and we'll send it to Nikon on Monday.
    Here's hoping....
    Cheers and have a good WE

    Not taken with a D801, but a D4 (not mine).... but to give an impression of why we undertook an 8 hour round trip to view these magnificent birds with their 2.8m wingspan.... awe inspiring!

    Not much time to care for photography these days, but here's one taken during working hours. The D810 with 20/28/50/105mm has so totally become my camera.

    1st day out with a camera in a few years. After hearing so much from a certain member about CMOS superiority, I tried out a backlit scene. Need to get my C1 and Lightroom running soon. Straight out of ViewNX for now. Nothing special, just trying to get a feel for the camera. D810 50 1.4

    Re: Fun with the D810

    Traveling incessantly, but had a few minutes to eyeball some pics from a recent trip to Nevada / Utah, first "real" trip with the D810 and the Sigma 35. This was basically a very fast grab shot as a huge group of kids was heading for the rocks!

    Since I am still on the road haven't had time to do much to this (basically the NEF straight through Capture One Pro) - and the "grey" sandstone in the distance was actually closer to lavender, but I am very pleased with the D810 + Sigma combo so far..
