I have a few questions about the D800e. I rented one over Christmas along with the 16-35 f4 lens. I shoot mostly landscapes and wanted to see how they turned out on the D800e compared to my 5d Mark ii with 17-40 f4 lens. I recently printed an 8"x12" section of a 40"x60" picture from both cameras. The d800e is, not surprisingly, noticeably sharper. I love the sensor and am considering purchasing one.
Here are my questions:
1) I have read about the issues with live view, but I am not sure if there is a fix for it or not. My 5d Mark ii's live view is great at giving me a realistic view of what the picture's exposure will be, but the d800e's was extremely dark and focusing using it was next to impossible in low light. I almost always use live view for landscapes, and this is a major issue for me. Any way around it?
2) Bracketing exposures was a long process. It's a pain to have to go into the menu and set up the timer and number of shots every time. Is there a quicker way around that?
Thanks in advance.
