Whats all the fuss that the D800 will be best on a tripod? Its ridiculous, all cameras are best on a tripod. They would probably also benefit if the world stopped turning to prevent vibration too. If you shoot your current camera handheld, you can shoot the D800 handheld with the same results. Why does everyone fret this point? What makes you think that the D800 will be different from any other DSLR produced? Why does everyone freak out about high MPs, and no one points out the benefits, like high dynamic range, better color rendition? These are the things that makes images, the highlights don't blow out as fast, the darks don't go black, isn't that worth having to buy bigger cards for? Even if you come home and immediately re-size everything to 12 MPs, that higher dynamic range and better color rendition is going to stay with the image (assuming you re-size to a RAW format). Come on people. Its a new camera, it means what you are going to shoot is going to look better, sure you pay an extra price for that, but haven't we payed that same price at almost every new camera generation? Aren't we used to the drill yet after 13 years of digital SLRs?
