I received my new Nikon D800 on Tuesday. Could not use it until tonight. I am in Las Vegas and running all over the place. As my meetings dragged on all that was really on my mind was getting a capture with the D800, getting back to the hotel and seeing 36 megapixels at work. Turns out I had a very short window to run up to Red Rock Canyon. Took a few shots. Was favored with a short burst of sun for about 6 minutes or so. Holy resolution. The detail is incredible. I really look forward to spending some time with both cameras. And pushing the limits of both! Here is the capture I got tonight. Shot with the D800, 24-70 f/2.8 lens, ISO 100.
