Nikon D810 summary

I’m about done with my Nikon D810 testing. I may do one or two little things, but it’s time for some conclusions.

There are many more improvements, but the ones mentioned above are the ones that are important to me.

My bottom line? Two big changes — LV and EFCS — are enough to make me switch. Add the AF improvements to that list if you use AF a lot. Where I’m going to stress the AF, I usually pick up the D4. All the smaller changes add up to a dramatically-improved photographic experience. I was initially skeptical, but this camera has won me over.

    Very nice site with lots of useful tests. I am very happy with the D810 so far. Wish there would be the same camera with a 16MP sensor, too. Keep up the good work!

      Thanks! IMHO, There’s an even better camera with a 16MP sensor, the D4. However, it costs — and weighs — more. When the images are both res’d down to , say, 8MP, the D810’s SNR is, theoretically, at least the equal of the D4’s, but finding the right algoritim in practice is not a problem I’ve completely solved for myself.
