As a lot of you know, I received photo.net's Nikon D800 test sample yesterday. Here are some images of the camera itself, with some comparisons with the D700. Clearly they look similar. One obvious difference is that the AF controls are different. In fact, the D800 uses the same design as the D7000 (DX format D7K). The C/S/M switch some people have problems changing accidentally is gone, so is the AF area mode selection switch on the back. Instead, similar to the D7000, you hold down the AF/M switch and then use the main and sub command dials to change AF modes. On the top side of the camera, next to the shutter release, there is a new button with a red dot in the center; that button controls video capture. Since yesterday I tried to test many memory cards on the new D800, I had to format them all, and I already had problem pressing the video button instead of the mode button to format the memory cards. And of course the 24mm/f3.5 PE-C lens works fine on the D800, with simiar minor restrictions as on the D700, but there are work arounds so that there is no issue at all.
