After shooting 10 and 12MP Nikons for years I ordered a D810 through NPS via my local camera shop - should be here in a day or two. Almost pulled the trigger on a D800E about 6 months ago but really was/am holding out for the D300s replacement. However, I'm shooting more panoramas and landscapes and a couple friends swear their D800s are the greatest thing since canned beer, so here we go.........going to mate it with the MB-D12 battery pack and grip with an EN-EL18a battery so it will shoot 7 fps in DX crop mode; dealer is taking my high mileage D300s/MB-D10 but still have the low shutter time one with an MB-D10 as well. The D810 buffer is reportedly 45 full shots at the 6 fps full res continuous shooting rate so the camera has a semi-decent sports capability with 6 and 7 fps options and I still have the D3 and D3s. Good thing the wife likes to shoot.
