This is kinda off topic, but why no love for the 550EX? It puts out more juice than the 430, can be used as a master, and costs only $200 used on ebay. I love mine.

The tech manual doesn't warn against shooting handheld, but it does encourage shooting with a tripod to reduce motion blur due to the high mp, they are basically giving a no nonsense tip. They are actually saying that because they have such a high mp camera, you will now be able notice the imperfections in your photos even more than you used too, so the tripod encouragement should come as no surprise. I can't imagine any camera manufacturer promoting shooting handheld over tripod for any reason.
Here the tech manual for those interested
When will the D800 start shipping? On time, just like the D4? Oh, wait...
So an extra $1500 for improved AF...wow
I think ETTL is fantastic for location shooting, impromptu shooting and when it comes to using speedlights really opens up the door to make things easier, especially with decent off-camera set ups, but I hardly use it. Most of my shooting is studio, though when I am using my 580 and Flex, I still tend to use manual settings as well
Always good to hear news about the mythical 1Dx.
wait till the video of the yeti using a 1Dx with 200-400f4L with builtin TC comes out...
Have yet to find a reason why I shouldn't use eTTL
Sure you did. Why wouldn't you? I included images so that you didn't have to click them to see them and if you did you knew what you were clicking with no element of chance. That's the point. Your link is blind.

Well since I'll be getting one in the first batch I'll do some direct side by side comparisons with my 1Ds Mklll and can post them here if you're interested, but of course the glass will be a variable too, not just the sensor. Anyhow I need to do it to for myself to know what I'm dealing with, so happy to share.
