For $2800, the D800 is a great option for portrait and studio photographers, but will have sports photographers wishing for a faster camera.
Nikon shook up the DSLR world when they announced the full-frame, 36 megapixel D800. Standing alone in its class, the D800 is jammed packed with features. Currently, the only DSLRs that come close to these specs and are in the same price range include the Nikon D600 and the Sony A99. But these cameras only have 24 megapixel sensors. Alternatively, you can drop $9,000 on the 40 megapixel medium format Pentax 645D or mortgage your house (and possibly your soul) for a Hasselblad or Phase One rig. Priced at a mere $2800, this camera makes us wonder if medium format digital camera companies are getting a little worried.
