    Switched from modded Canon T3 to Nikon D810, was originally thinking about the D810A but wanted a setup that could do Astro and Landscapes. Quite satisfied with my decision and pleased with my Alaska Northern Lights pictures. Only regretted not buying the Nikkor 14-24mm f2.8 ED lenses as the Tokina 16-28 mm had quit a bit of coma at the edges. The camera is a bit heavy but with a nice manfrotto head and slik tripod, my pictures turned out remarkably well. Battery life was good even when the temperature plummets to -24F. I have used this body for 5 months so far using various lenses including large telescopes to capture galaxies, nebula, aurora, and landscapes with excellent color and resolution. I find it much easier to use rather than using my specialized ccd cameras that cost 3x's the cost of this body. Paired with a quality lense, this camera will allow you to capture some stunning images. I did buy a wireless shutter controller while up in Alaska which helps not only for Astro but distant animal photos. There was a learning curve making the switch from Canon to Nikon but so far it has been worth it. I still might consider buying the D810A version but it would be exclusively be used for Astro images.

    The D810 is an awsome camera. This camera can give you image quality that can rival medium format camera, but you pay for that with very large file size and potential workflow slowdown if you have an older computer system. My only gripe is i bought this camera from Best Buy and it was not "brand new", someone have already took it out of the box, setup the camera, and already taken a bunch of shots with it. This was sold to me as brand new. You can tell if a camera is "brand new" from the factory or not is when you put in the battery, the first thing it should promt you to do is to select a language and or region. The camera I got did not do this, it was already set up, i can just start shooting, so i check the shutter count via embeded data on the image files, it was less than 100, so i decided not to go thru the hassle of trying to prove it to best buy and I kept the camera anyway. I wish that best buy didnt do this kind of things but some times when you try to support your local stores and not buy stuff via the internet, it back fires.

    A nice camera for professional work

    There are some nice features to this camera, and it can produce some quality images. The one thing you don't find disclosed in the product description though is that the Raw files produced by this camera, probably will not be recognized by your computer, or a lot of software. So until you can update your operating system and your software, you are forces to convert you RAW files to DNG files before you can process them. I know this is due to the camera having an advanced image processor, and in time most programs may be updated to where they can be user friendly with the Nikon D810, but it would be nice to be made aware of this before you purchase the camera. The camera itself is an excellent quality full frame camera, and should be a dependable tool to work with for some time. The overall weight is a little heavy, but if you desire the high resolution as I myself do then you don't mind the weight. Of course this is still almost the same body as the D800, and if you are used to it you should be comfortable with this camera as well. Overall it performs very well, and is a professional quality camera. Other than having to adjust for the inabillity of being able to directly process the RAW files at the moment, I am very pleased with is as a whole.

    D810 is the best + Amazing menu banks

    You already know the spec and how great the D810 is, however you may not have heard about the menubanks The menu banks is one of my favorite features in this camera. There are two "shooting menu" and the "custom menu". Shooting menu banks: Similar to the U1, U2 menus in other cameras this one has A, B, C, D and you can rename it as you wish and can program it using M, A & S modes. You don't have to save it. e.g select menu A and then choose A or M or S mode, choose preferred values for Shutter speed, ISO (auto/manual), Aperture, white balance, image quality, exposure compensation, flash compensation, output format / quality, metering mode, AF points type etc.Until you change it will remain the way it is. Using the "i" button you can access and choose the different menus that you have created Custom menu: Button mapping Similar to shooting meni A, B, C & D you can rename. Using the custom menu you program and map the buttons differently in each menus. I use back button focusing and other shortcuts which my wife doesn't prefer when she uses the camera. So I created a separate menu and renamed to my name and mapped the buttons and a separate menu for my wife and mapped buttons according to her preference. Whoever uses the camera can choose their custom menu using "i" button. We love this feature and none of the cameras I know have this

    I have been waiting for a long time to find a camera with a full sized sensor that would give me decent quality, decent pricing, and not leave me wanting to upgrade once I started to get to know it. My last SLR used film, and I have owned a couple of so-so digital cameras a step above point and shoot. Before buying, the more I read about it and learned about the features it had, the more nervous/excited I became to make the jump to the D810. Now that I have used it for several weeks, I realize that it is a lot easier to use than expected, and the results are as good as expected. The menus are very straight forward, and organized logically. I have built a menu of my own with the selections I use the most, and I am also learning (slowly) more of the adjustments the camera allows. For starters, I have paired this with a 24-70mm f2.8 and a 70-200mm f2.8 and I am once again enjoying the ability to take photos where I can control more than simply what is in the frame. One Big Negative... Soon I will be spending money on Prime Lenses.

    The D810 is an amazing camera. I migrated from the D800 and was worried it would only be an incremental upgrade, but it turns out the D810 feels and performs like a brand new camera. The first thing you will notice is the quieter and smooth shutter sound which is very gratifying. The camera ergonomics feel very good and although slightly lighter, still feels substantial in your hand. The focus system is vastly improved and found myself using Group AF primarily for all shooting. My keeper rate has increased tremendously between the combination of the minimized shutter slap and the improved AF. Although I shoot RAW, I did notice JPG processing in the camera is much improved. Tonal colors, sharpness, clarity, and contrast have been tweaked and produce excellent photos - to my eye. Your taste may vary. Controls are logical and familiar between the D700 and D800 phones I have. I do not use video. I am still digging into the new features such as the Highlight Exposure mode, Live view improvements, etc. To me this is the best all around and balanced DSLR on the market today.

    Literally a best buy

    Did a lot of research on DSLR cameras including all the new releases such as Nikon D500 and Canon 5D mark 4. Honestly, I love the Nikon color (possibly the only other that seems to come close is Fuji.) the d810 camera is a Best Buy right now due to the low price and all the goodies that BB offers, including the battery grip. I got all new glass, the new 24-70 and new 70-200. Pictures come out amazing. Had to get a flash, since the build in flash position causes a shadow from the lenses. If you have a prime or a standard zoom, build in flash probably ok. But new top shelf glass is obviously bigger and longer. I expect that Nikon will come out very soon with a d820 or d850 as replacement, but this camera gives me everything I need for next 5yrs at a fantastic price. For those who are wondering which way to go: Nikon, canon, Sony, or even Fuji. I will say that I got the a7r2 first with Sony too glass and I hated the cool color that Sony provides. Canon seemed more expressive to buy into right now and the current Nikon gear is better plus I think the Nikon coloring (except for red) is better than canon. Fuji is top notch but doesn't offer a full frame option (so it's more of a competitor to Nikon DX format and Sony a6500.) so currently Nikon is the way to go and cheapest too.

    The upgrades from the D800 and D800E are very much what I had hoped for. There are a lot of upgrades but here are the ones I like a lot. The D810 has no low pas filter and is very, very sharp and I haven't noticed any moire. Higher buffer rate is greatly appreciated. They added zebra stripes which seems long over due. I've been playing around with there new "Flat" profile for both photos and video and so far I'm really liking it a lot! Using the Flat profile with video, is like shooting in RAW for video! Another helpful tool is group auto focusing. The D810 has better ISO range now from 64-12,800. Nikon also improved the battery life. It still uses the same battery that the D800 used but now has up to 33% shooting time. My use is mostly for video but this camera is great for both video and photos.
