Great to see you in the final. Congratulations Aimee. I just got a new camera, D800E and very excited to try out the new features including some video . There have been some cons about this but no to me it is no big deal. The focusing issue already solved and my set is fine as it is latest production. 4 fps is not the issue compare to D300 as the buffer and sensor is fast and accurate, so I may get 4 fps but alway got at least 1 or 2 images when panning motion shot. But I can follow continously shooting more bc of the large buffer. Sometimes my D300 could not track fast enough. Next time you want to upgrade go for D800 instead of D600. ALOT OF discussion abt D600 is cheaper then the latter . My decision is simple, D800 made in Japan tilt in favour as their QC is very stringent. I am sharing my personal opinion as I used the set for few shooting outcome. #10394105
