This is a professional tool with the construction quality and technology that makes it suitable for photographers who take pictures for a living. It is designed to make 100's of thousands of exposures and work reliably for years in a wide range of environments - it is not a toy. If you need a camera with the capabilities of a D810, you are already spending a lot of money on really good glass or you're wasting your money on a 36 MP body.

Hi - been a pro photographer for 36 years. I own both and think the 24-70 is a FAR superior lens. its worth working a little harder to hold still or brace yourself. The extra stop allows for a faster shutter speed, helping to reduce motion.

According to dxomarks tests using the D800E, the 24-120 is rated at 15 P-mpix, while the 24-70 is rated at 21. If sharpness is a priority to you, the 24-70 better matches this camera's resolution. It all depends on whether lens flexibility or sharpness matters most.

It comes with a one-year warranty, as do, I assume, all Nikon cameras (same for all other makes). An extended, extra cost warranty, of two and three years, usually is offered by the retailer.

I have had no problem since mine came back although I am not certain I had a problem prior to sending it back. At the present time I am happy and I will report back if anything develops.

The sharpness and detail should be pretty similar with the D810 having a slight edge. The D810 is going to get more "keepers" due to its superior AF system, for any shots that are of moving subjects or where you cannot use a tripod.

Yeah the HD video shot on a Canon 5dMKIII is pretty much the same as that shot on a Nikon D810... unless you consider that the Canon, even with "Magic Lantern" can still not do FULL 1080p HD at 60fps... If that matters (and you also want the D810's extreme resolution and sharpness) get the Nikon!

It'll handle just about anything short of 4k video, which is increasingly becoming a thing. Still, it's quite nice for 1080p video, and it's an amazing still camera. If you've got the cash, go for it. I love mine.
