The last of the mist

By tartanlady
The mist was almost gone when I took this shot on Rannoch Moor, there were still some reflections on the lochan and the light was catching the hoar frost on the trees and grasses.

perfect icy tranquility
You will love the 8800 for landscapes as the image quality is stunning.
I parted with mine as I am still deciding what I want to photograph and found the autofocus could be slow and frustrating under certain circumstances.Although I love my Canon 350D I have to admit that nothing I have seen matches the image quality of the 8800

I think Skye has hit the nail on the head and got it right, pointing out the incredible image quality you're achieving, with your 8800. I had it too with a 995 Nikon but found the shutter lag too frustrating for general work and any moving subject, landscapes were pin sharp but even those, not as sharp as you're getting here.
I would stick to it even if you do go for a D-SLR anytime.
Wonderful image thisSmile
