dont forget the question to ask yourself.. is the 800E worth 20% more than the 800?

You likely will have to as LR 3 won't support it... if it is the same thing as the D4 that is.

Thanks for the info Jerry. I will get LR4. I'd prefer getting a new computer first. I'm looking at one with a two TB hard drive. I'm trying not to seriously upset my wife with too many big expenditures. She wasn't thrilled about the camera. A photo someone posted elsewhere of a bird, where you could count the individual feathers if you had the patience helped.

It arrived a day early. Battery is charging. But I took it out back for a quickie prior to starting the charge. These were just hand held. BTW, I did check the far left focus points and they seemed to work perfectly.

Files are big and my three year old computer is painfully slow handling them.

[[I'm looking at one with a two TB hard drive]]

you might find that that's not even enough if you save files in raw format- I have 2 harddrives that = 3 TB and they do fill up faster than you'd think- Unless you have soem off computer harddrives?

Nice photos by the way- did you do any processign on them? Levels, curves, color boost noise reduction? or anything? It seems htere is a fair bit of noise i nthe photos backgrounds? also, coudl you post hte exif on them? Like ISO shutter speed etc?

I knew space would be an issue, but it's a bigger one than I expected. Files are huge. I took the camera out this morning to a wildlife refuge with 12 Gb worth of space on two cards. I had room for 13 more shots when I got home after not that much shooting.

EXIF on the previous shots: ISO=320, 1/2500sec, f/5.6 at 400mm. Camera was at default setting of matrix metering and the shots were a little underexposed, which probably added some background noise. I will post an initial impressions thread once I've gone through this morning's shots.
