I've been getting rapped by idiot fanboys on the Nikon SLR forums for a long time by pointing out how greedy Nikon have become.
Reading below comments looks like I'm not alone anymore :)
mais51: This policy put me off buying anymore Nikon gears - if they don't immediately reverse it then lots of D800 and D4 will remain on the shelves
Yep, It's the final straw. I'm going back to Pentax, see if they give a rats ass about their customers.
GREED. this company keeps proving it no longer cares for photographers and only for moron consumers with more money than sense. Due to this change I can't get my sensor filter fixed as Nikon's policy is to only replace the sensor unit - for +$1000. GREEDY!
