I'm confused. With a DX lens on my D300 I see the entire viewfinder filled with the exact image I'm going to get, no matter whether I have a DX or FX lens attached. Reading what's available so far online on the D750, I gather that with a DX lens attached, I'd only see a small image in the viewfinder, though I'm not sure if that's a small image with black around it, or a large image with the centre DX bit marked by a reduced outline, just like my dad used to get on an M3 Leica with a 90mm lens fitted. I want the entire viewfinder to show the exact image I'm going to end up with, whether I'm using a DX lens or an FX one, am I asking the impossible?
This gives a pretty good explanation:
The video output of the D800 (and 750) is "broadcast quality" as Eric said. There were some TV guys at Le Mans Classic doing just that, in preference to using a hulking video-cam.
Even my D700 is able to take a moving shot of a black cat in a coal hole; the newer units are better still.
The "full frame" viewfinder is (daft thing to say) undoubtably the best thing about a "full frame" camera. All smaller-sensor digi-cams I have used before have been a bit of a struggle for shooting motor-sport (not to mention even faster things).
And here is one where I nearly pulled it off but should have gone for a faster shutter, panning one way with two blokes going the opposite way. Not bad timing though (I only ever take single shots) all those years of trying for the "decisive moment" with cars, eh?
