Happy with my D800, what will it take to make you upgrade?
Jul 24, 2014

I hate to admit that I am so enamored with equipment but here goes.

I currently own a D800 which, for my purposes, is pretty much a perfect picture making machine.  I love the image quality, the handling, focusing  and yes even the size (the majority of the weight for most FF kits is the lens and will probably continue to be so).

I think the D810 is a really wonderful camera, but, that being said I have no interest in trading up.

I think this is an interesting marketing question for Nikon and other manufacturers of FF gear, namely, what can they need to do to get existing FF owners to upgrade?

I am sure there are pros who wait for the next model with upped frames per second etc.  but for advanced amateurs, why bother?

What would it take for current Nikon FF  owners to upgrade, please let me know.
