Promising extremely high-resolution images, the Nikon D800 doesn't disappoint; better yet, its high-ISO performance surprised us, able to produce a good 8 x 10-inch print even at ISO 25,600. Well-designed and built, the Nikon D800 is a premium performer that easily earns its selling price.Pros
Rugged build; Excellent controls; Extremely high resolution; Dual cards; Surprising high ISO performance.Cons
Very large files; Slower frame rate; Custom white balance gives a greenish tint; Battery life lower than D700.Price and availability
