I have to say that I swayed a little bit on the fence with this one… It was a tough decision to make and the deciding factor was when I sold my Gigapan (replaced by my Really Right Stuff pano system, which I am Extremely Happy with).
Within a couple of days of selling the GigaPan, I headed over to my no-so-local camera shop (which I still call local) in Delta (Photo Expert), and also traded in my D800. On a quick side note, if you have never dealt with Photo Expert, you really need to. From their customer service, to pricing, they truly ARE THE BEST! photoexpert.com.
The bottom line is I could not be happier with the upgrade. Many people have made comments, but really, it is an awesome upgrade I am Extremely happy with. I find much better noise up to 3200 ISO, noticeably better range of light and the images are EXTREMELY sharp! The biggest thing for me was the lack of moire and much better color on the rear monitor. These were just “yard tests”, but again, I can see a difference… There are number of other upgrades, but because I don’t use those features that often, to me, they are not relevant.
