He supports his 'growing family' with his blog.

The 5Dmk3 is available for purchase now. The D800 is backlogged for months along with key nikkor lenses.

Revenue is created for him when a reader clicks from his site to buy a camera/lens.

It's obvious he made a business decision pushing the 5Dmk3 wouldn't you?

This is spot on. He wants you to buy a camera that is shipping now.

It's also a more expensive camera (+$500) so whatever commission he earns on sales via his affiliate links will be higher. It might only work out to be an extra $15-20 but his site gets a lot of traffic so it would quickly add up.

And why would anyone take his 'reviews' seriously when he begs for donations. He also frequently 'reviews' gear he's never used.

And finally he's a seasoned flip-flopper – his opinions change all the time. Give it a few weeks and he'll be back on the D800 bandwagon again.
