Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Gold Award
May 2016
The D810 offers medium format image quality at ISO 64, and more than enough resolution for almost any application. Its well thought-out ergonomics, build and speed make it as versatile in the field as in the studio. We do have some reservations: mirror slap can be an issue with some VR lenses, and the electronic 1st curtain implementation is limited. We also wish focus were more reliable in low light, but these do not detract unduly from the quality of the total package.

Personal takes

Barney Britton Barney Britton Editor
The D810 is Nikon's flagship high-resolution DSLR, and two years since its introduction, it still represents a performance benchmark for cameras in this class. Features like 3D AF tracking, market-leading dynamic range at ISO 64 and a tough, weather-resistant body make the D810 a fantastic all-rounder.
Rishi Sanyal Rishi Sanyal Deputy/Tech Editor
With the market push for higher ISOs, it's fantastic to see a camera making gains on the opposite end: ISO 64 allows the D810 to capture as much light as medium format cameras, leading to unprecedented image quality and dynamic range, provided you can give the camera the extra light.

Reasons to buy

  • Industry-leading dynamic range: The D810 offers class-leading dynamic range and low noise performance at ISO 64, rivaling medium-format cameras.
  • Sharp images: Lack of AA filter and the redesigned mirror helps keep image sharp. An electronic 1st curtain, though awkward to use, guarantees sharp shots.
  • Excellent subject-tracking and face detection: The D810's 3D AF tracking is capable of superb accuracy, capable of following a subject as specific as an eye around the frame.
  • Large buffer, fast response: A large buffer allows you to shoot 32 continuous 14-bit compressed Raws without a drop in burst rate. The D810 is also very responsive: despite its large 36MP files, you can check focus at 100% after firing a shot instantly.
  • High speed shooting: The D810 can shoot at frame rates of 5 fps at full resolution and 7 fps in DX crop mode with battery grip, making it useful for moderately-paced sports and action photography.

Things to consider

  • AF can struggle in low light: The D810's autofocus system can hunt, or simply miss focus in low light, where competitors - and predecessors - do not.
  • Mirror/shutter vibrations can cause blur: At telephoto focal lengths, use of slower shutter speeds can result in image blur due to mirror and shutter vibration. It can get worse with certain lenses when VR engaged. While the new electronic shutter helps, it's not available outside of Mup mode, nor can it be combined with short mirror delays, so is only useful for tripod work.
  • High ISO & JPEG performance not best-in-class: Although the D810 is unmatched at ISO 64, high ISO performance and JPEG image quality lags slightly behind the best of its competitors.
  • Slow AF in live view: Focusing in live view and movie mode is very slow, to the point where it's unusable for capturing video.

I recently sold my D800 body and replaced it with the D810. I do not typically upgrade cameras this quickly but I hoped that the D810 would be a little more refined in certain respects than the D800. So far this has proven to be the case.

UPDATE 8-11-2014 Spent two weeks shooting landscapes and wildlife in Maine. The new group auto focus setting was amazing for shots of birds. The focus tracking was amazing and I was able to secure the best eagle pictures I have ever taken and all the credit goes to the D810. My D200, D800 and even D4 would have had trouble tracking these subjects. The auto focus improvements are extremely substantial and have immediate real world benefits.

The big headline to me regarding the D810 is the shutter and mirror assembly. The sound of the camera is completely different than the D800 or the D4 for that matter. The D810 sounds like there has been a lot of work done on damping the mechanical vibrations that occur when the shutter is tripped. In my initial testing I found that with the Nikkor 105VR Micro that there was a noticeable reduction in the slight blur that I had always attributed to mirror slap on the D800. Holding the camera when it triggers, one feels less bounce going on inside the body.

UPDATE 7-23-2013 Shooting macro with the 105VR I definitely saw an improvement in focus acuity and it seemed that the combination of improved focus and VR yielded noticeably better results than the D800.

Having had a D800 and going through the experience of having to return several due to the "left focus issue" before I found a good one, it was one of the first things I tested. I am happy to report that I found no evidence of variability in focus across the range of focus points.

I upgrade from D7000 with 17-55mm F2.8 to D810 with 24-70 mm F2.8. So most of my comparison will be compared to my old D7000. I had D810 for couple of weeks but did not shoot much due to busy schedule until yesterday. I brought two kids out to play mini golf and to the play ground yesterday. Had a great time shooting 300 photos in like 3 hours. My fast CF card is on the way so I used Transcend SDHC 32 GB Class 10 rated 18 MB/s write speed, I had no problem in shooting raw, lossless compressed in 14 bit photos, about 40 MB/s per photo. I shoot about 1 frame per second for maximum 5 photos continuously. Really impressed by the buffer of D810.

My D7000 and 17-55mm combination was good and I shoot lots of photos with it so I thought I will never have the desire to upgrade to full frame body. But boy I was so wrong. After yesterday, I realize the full frame bokeh and feel of the photo is much better than on DX body, indeed as people claimed. I used group focus most of the time since the kids were moving all the time. The focus was fast, got it right 97% of the time I would say. Much better than the single focus point of D7000 since the group focus has bigger focus area so you do not need to change focus point often. I use AF-ON button to focus, which is much better laid out than D7000. The AE-L/AF-L button on D7000 is so badly designed that I found it unusable.

Other impression with the D810 is that Pixels DO matter! It makes me not afraid of cropping the photo. Meanwhile I believe the photos look much sharper on my screen, comparing to D7000 and 17-55mm F2.8. Yes, the lens and no AA filter increase the sharpness on D810, but I believe the huge chunk of pixels squeeze on the screen makes it look sharper too. And I feel more pixels make spot healing in PS easier too.

I have a D800 and have just purchased the D810. I was a bit nervous from reading "previews" that the difference in performance between the two bodies were not enough to justify the purchase of this new body. I am glad to say that at least for me, I am very happy and have not touched my D800 except once since purchase. The differences are subtle, but they make the package. It's sort of like driving a Toyota Camry, and then jumping into a Lexus. You still get there, and the Camry's not bad, but the Lexus just makes the drive so much better.
First of all, and I think most important of all is the autofocus is so much quicker. I was demonstrating it to my friend by just turning the camera to anything and press the shutter and it instantly focus and takes the picture. I set the menu mode for shutter release on focus only. On the D800, you will get the focus just a bit slower. Although this may not sound like a big difference, it allows me to get "that" picture with more confidence. I was never able to to use autofocus "c" mode to follow a flying bird because it is just not fast enough, or maybe I am not good enough of a photographer. However, on the D810, I was able to follow a dragonfly buzzing around my backyard and out of 6-7 pictures, I got 3 excellent in focus one. One of the picture looked like 3D because it was so clear!
The second difference, which I think is just as important to me is the improvement of ISO performance. I compared the noise level between ISO 800 - 12800 on both cameras. On the D800, I could definitely see annoying noise, even with noise reduction turned on by 1600, and by 3200, it was definitely unacceptable. On the D810, I could definitely see noise by 2500, and by 8000, it was definitely unacceptable.
