based on the following sites

PROS

  • The Nikon D810 may prove to be the sharpest DSLR ever with its super high resolution 36 megapixel sensor,
  • Low or bright light is no challenge with the wide ISO range of 32-51200,
  • The updated body makes for better weather proofing and a more comfortable grip on the camera.

CONS

  • Quality is going to cost you a pricey $3300 for the body alone.
  • There is no integrated Wi-Fi or GPS, which is becoming the norm for less costly alternatives.
  • The Nikon D810 uses a Compact Flash and an SD card that makes it harder to download data as most laptops don't have built in Compact Flash readers.
The Nikon D810 is an incremental update to the D800/D800E with a better feel and improved sharpness due to a redesigned sensor. The improved LCD display screen ups the resolution over its predecessor, though the lack of built-in Wi-Fi and GPS is disappointing. For more exposure control, the D810 supports ISO 64 to 12,800 natively, with an extended range of ISO 32 to 51,200. You can store files at 36 megapixels or use the new smaller Raw Size S NEF format for faster transfers. You can shoot video at full HD 1080p in FX format, and Zebra mode helps show when highlights are getting blown out. While the mismatched memory cards and high price are hitches, look at the D810 for super high resolution in a pro-level camera.

It may be more re-hash than revolution, but the Nikon D810 can produce staggeringly good images when paired with the right lens.

This is one great camera that’s worth trading in your older gear or breaking into that rainy day fund – it’s simply that good.

All things considered, I think the D810 is an excellent camera. It may not be worthwhile existing D800 and D800E users upgrading, but it is still a superb replacement to these cameras with some great refinements.
