    Shooting straight into the sun, no post process whatsoever, If this was my D7000 it would have been a low key lighting kind of picture... lol

    "If this was my D7000 it would have been a low key lighting kind of picture" - what do you mean?, didn't understand your terminology...

    I mean the bright sun would have fooled the meter and give me the wrong reading, and the pictures would come out all dark. Either that or blown out sky.

    Wow... here I was just today wondering if I should go D800 (I cancelled my D4), and thinking "man, but I bet the dynamic range on the 800 is gonna be a disaster".

    This is impressive. Very impressive.

    If I recall the sensor scoring correctly the D800 sensor has the "highest dynamic range" available today. Still remarkable what you exemplify here.

    BTW, highlight recovery is AWESOME! I can recover about 2 stops of what thought to be blown out areas.
