Nikon D800 - the BABY D4!

The King of DSLR, the Nikon D4 gave birth to a baby; the D800 was born to replace the venerable 30 months old D700.

After the lack luster response to their new "small sensor" Nikon 1, Nippon Kōgaku came back with a vengeance and caress their fan boy with a whopping 36.3 mega pixel CMOS inside a solidly build body!

This is what Nikon said about their new sensor:

"The D800/D800E render levels of texture, nuance and detail to your photography that, until now, have been the exclusive domain of the complicated medium-format system.
 Define every eyelash, every line in tree bark, and every shimmer of light. Savor the exceptional depth in your still images — with the combination of an astounding 36.3 effective megapixels, the world's highest*, and the outstanding performance of NIKKOR lenses, you can.
