Nikon D810: A sport photographer’s impressions

I guess the revelation for me was not that more pixels give you more options – as you say, that’s pretty obvious – but that the camera that provides them isn’t fatally compromised – for this sort of work – in other areas in order to achieve the detail.

It could easily have been – slower AF, lower frame-rate, smaller buffer – but in practice they’re all good enough – if not, obviously, best-in-class.

The large file sizes could have been a deal breaker, too. It does have a negative impact on workflow and without the ability to save RAW to one card and JPG to another, for example, it would simply not have worked for me.
