    My D810 review

    I rented the D810 with the Nikkor 14-24mm lens today. Pictures came out nice, but they are not much better than pictures you can get from much cheaper cameras. I am wondering if my pictures came out worse, since I could not DL pictures onto my computer in RAW. Be that as it may, for a $3300 camera and $1800 lens, you should get a lot better JPGs. My T3i had pictures that were not that far off from the D810's. As a result, I am disappointed. The D810 should only be $1500 and the lens should be $750. Camera companies are gouging prices. You can get very nice pics out of smart phones now. Camera companies who make these "higher-end" cameras might go extinct.

    So you have your answer and saved a whole lot of money by renting first.

    Indeed. I learned a lot today. There might just be a conspiracy to promote these expensive cameras, even though they are not that great.

    Dave Dougdale said it best from LearnDSLR.com when he compared the T3i to the 5DMIII. He said the latter is not worth the money.

    Are you serious? Not that great? The Nikon D810 is one of the best cameras on the market...I have not seen any of your work, but please don't blame the camera... P.S... I see no D810 review in this thread..

    I think it is a great idea to hire first - try before you buy. As Marcel says it will have saved you a bundle.

    Unicorns are extinct - but man wouldn't it be nice to see a herd of them? I guess a lot of things could become extinct - especially in technology - so let's enjoy them while we can.

    No - they really are extinct. What you saw was something further down the evolution chain - soon to be extinct too, so enjoy.

    Actually take a photo and post so I can enjoy too.

    You actually rented that piece of crap??? I would ask for a refund if i were you and insist that they never rent out such garbage ever again. I agree with you man, Nikon has it all backwards. The D810 really should be an entry level camera; after all, my D3000 could take better photos then that lump of lame as* electronics. Nikon sucks and the D810 sucks even more. Great "review", hope to see more. Anyhow, got to get back to my card game with Elvis and Jimmy Hoffa.
