Nikon D800 production facts
In reply to Holmes375, Dec 8, 2011

Nikon assume that the production will run completly again in April 2012.

One offical purchaser (NPS) here in Switzerland told me that. He was informed officially from the Nikon headquater.

The problem was that Nikon has some production sectors outsourced after Fokushima to Thailand. So it's not realistic that we'll see the D800 in advance before this date. Considering that and that the hole production must catch up the

backlog, I expect that the D800 will be soonest ready for shipment in May or June 2012. Therefore, if you can't wait for the new D800, I suggest to buy the D700.
