I have gone from 800E to 810. Results are noticeably sharper, quiet shutter, better low ISO. More importantly, same battery as 800E so don't need to replace all my spares. Got extra £150.00 trade-in for my 800E from a shop in Westminster (not sure if I can mention name in this post in case it is seen as advertising).



I think it's perfectly acceptable to give your personal experience/opinion about a specific retailer just as you are to discuss a specific camera made by a specific manufacturer.
Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another...

Nikon just released a recall for some of the D810's... sensor 'bright spots'

Well I sent mine back a few day ago as the focus consistency wasn't right, although some were ok some (many) not. This in a studio setting with static subjects and a 100% replication of sessions taken with the D800. I'm hoping if all sorted the focus system will be slightly better than the D800 which I didn't find great for moving subjects, I say if because my experience with Nikon is hit and miss, I bet despite a recall they won't automatically correct the issues they sent out a recall notice for!

My thoughts are that the 'old' model doesn't become 'poor' when a new camera, lens or WHY is brought out, but there is always an element of consumerism, especially in the amateur market where the 'latest is best' philosophy prevails, and where most of the early adopters come from.
Regardless of brand, or product, most early batches of almost any product have problems or glitches. Maybe part of the Marketing Departments driving release of products as quickly as possible, before ad aqua testing can be done, seemingly the 810 is no different.
My personal policy is to jump 2 generations, rather than 1.
