I recently said farewell to my odd assortment of lenses, gadgets and gear, along with my Fuji S5 Pro. Then I invested n a Nikon D800 professional SLR. At 36 million pixels, a 100% coverage viewfinder, Shutter speed up to 1/8000 sec., ISO up to 6400, and more, I knew could get some really good pictures. But I also know that the camera is nothing without a good lens. So I did TONS of research and ended up with a F2.8 70-200 Nikkor and a Nikkor 50mm F1.8 prime lens.
Yesterday i went out into the sunny late afternoon and tried things out. I still have a lot to learn, but I'm a happy camper. I can shoot in mostly Manual mode, spin my dials, check my meters, and get pretty near perfect results. here's a sample;

|Hey, there, silage-breath!|
