D800 + HQ lens like 70-200 VR II = pure seks

Must say though, the only reason to have ~40 or higher megapixels is for cropping

meh

Or for LARGE lovely prints...!

Man, all those times I've thought "hey, I'd like to do a 20X30 print of this 200% crop!"

hahahahaha... not quite what I meant, but yea! lol! I have actually gotten some lovely 20x30 / 24x30's from it so far.... and it would print larger nicely. :)

Having a D800 and not printing 20x30 or higher is like having a Veyron and driving on a 35mph road @ 35mph.

Albuquerque Balloon Fest in the mid 80's. Shot on 120. Was up on a hill outside the main grounds.. and got a nice shot of a lot of different balloons.. some prepping, some taking off...

Largest 35mm I ever printed was 20x30... and have done that with digital also.

If you want to fill a full house wall with just one picture, 36 Megapixel will suddenly not be so much anymore. :confused::mrgreen:
