Right from the beginning, from those days of Nikon D800 and D800E were announced, everybody was astonished to one fact, yes its 36.3 massive megapixel count.
There is everything one has to go for with this beast, coming as a successor to the D700, this camera is no doubt a huge leap in technology. No doubt it would be so tempting for any professional. For the amount of features and the specifications D800 has to provide, it is already justified for the price range it is sold at. Not just for the 36 mega pixels but some surreal features which makes this almost unavoidable for any serious full frame enthusiasts.
