D800 is fucking amazing.. I got to shoot with it for 5 minutes and that 100% view finder was beautiful... Only thing I dislike about the D800 is the 36mp. That's a whole lot of spaced stored up in no time lol

Yea, the benefits really that I saw; crop the photo and it will still look great, prints would be perfect when blown up

Guys, I'm trying to get into photography, and I'm looking to buy my very first real camera.

What should I go for, and what lenses should I get? I have no price limit, so throw anything at me.

Good thing we have a fresh thread.

I'll just repost some stuff now that people might take a look at it.

Personally, I'd recommend a Nikon D800 or D800E, if money isn't an issue. Canon and Nikon (the big two for DSLRs) are equally as competent when it comes to the technical aspects of photography, but every year their respective models differ by small incremental changes. Some years Canon is on top, next year it could be Nikon. Thus it has stood for the last couple of decades. Ease of use and the ability to shoot on the fly is what you should be looking for, regardless of what type of photography you intend to do. You want something with ergonomic controls, an LCD with good pixel density, and full HD video if that tickles your fancy. With those factors considered, I would recommend the Nikon D800 or D800E. Don't take my word for it, read this extremely comprehensive review to learn about the pros and cons. KenRockwell isn't sponsored by any major camera manufacturer, so his reviews are completely unbiased. Good website to learn from. He's got a wealth of knowledge to share, regardless of your skill level. If you do choose the Nikon, I'd recommend these lenses:

http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/50mm-f14-afs.htm
http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/135mm-f2-dc.htm
http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/70-300-vr.htm

Make sure to buy a lens filter. You might like the way a polarizing filter works. Whichever you buy, it's a great security measure to keep dust out of the lens and a line of defense if you drop it. A sturdy tripod is a necessity. A good bag to hold your camera and lenses, also.

www.bhphotovideo.com is a good place to shop. Can be pricey at times, but they've got EVERYTHING you'll ever need. Check out Adorama for an alternative. Hope I've helped in some way. That post took a while, but photography is my life's passion and I love to hear about anyone trying to become a shutterbug.
