I was going to do a post on here, but had the usual problem getting the images to show (I know, it's simple enough, but I was having a senior moment). I've put it on the croshaw blog instead, along with a few piccys!

Agree with your summary of the D800 and the way you have used it makes sense. I struggle with mine, cos I am really not a tripod kind of person....so quite often I find myself preferring to pick up the D3 or Fuji Xpro. But, as you say, when you get it right, the dynamic range is super on the D800. Kev.

Have you tried shooting RAW + jpg - as the jpg is such high res, for most 'batch processing' of lower res photos it will produce excellent results (assuming correct exposure etc).
You then have the full raw to fall back on if you find some pics where the exposure/colour balance is wrong or particularly difficult.

I'm not sure, but I think Canon have traditionally applied more aggressive (default) processing on jpgs than Nikon, so if you are used to jpgs from small canon sensors it's worth having a look at D800 jpgs.
The double slots makes it easy to write raw to one slot and jpg to another.
Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another...
