    Hi Ole-I love your photos! I am a Nikon user as well. Is your wildlife book out in English yet? I have a 300S plus 300 2.8 + 1.4 TC; would you recommend a switch to the D800?

    Thanks Jim

    My wildlife book is not ready for english yet, but it’s almost translated.
    I really like the D800, but the image files are very big, so you need a lot of “power” in you computer…

    My family has just booked photo safari to India in Bandhavgarh and Kanha for next spring with Talat Khalid and wildlife photo tours. I noticed you had traveled with them as well. Any comments on the trip you had with them and any recommendations you can add?
