The Nikon D800 made its appearance at the CP+ Show in Japan. Those in attendance were able to see the camera up close and hold it, however they were not able to take sample pictures using the camera. On display were some of the D800’s components including the magnesium alloy body. Brian Tobey (btobey.com) got his hands on the D800 at the event and was impressed, stating its looks and handling are an improvement over the D700.
