Photoman25: PCNation is now taking orders for the D4s. I just spoke to Rick, and the first ten order spots are taken, but they're happy to keep taking them. I've been using him for a year now, and he's never let me down.

Same here, Rick does Yeoman's work, I have 2 of those 10 order spots by the way :-)

sebastian huvenaars: Played with a silver one today, its big! In my mind i've been falsely comparing it with an FE all this time. The D800 feels smaller and lighter, less pressure points.

I have a Df, a D4, and a D800. The D800 does not feel smaller OR lighter... mostly because it's not. I've only had the Df for a few weeks, but I think it's great, it's the camera I reach for when I plan to go out and shoot for myself; my X100s used to have that spot, but not anymore. It seems that most of the criticism is coming from people who have held it for a minute or have never actually seen one. I'm not saying that it's for everyone, but I don't understand the hate. I don't care for the Pentax K-5, but it doesn't bother me that some people like it, more power to them!

erotavlas: my opinion is that this camera (and others like it) don't advance digital camera technology forward very much, if at all. We have such amazing and advanced knowledge and manufacturing capabilities today that are beckoning for someone to put them to good use, only to be silenced. And not only silenced, but also insulted. We insulted technology and innovation by creating such a thing. As if Nikon hit a brick wall and lost all their imagination and creativity on how to use today's technology to develop something new and innovative. So they went backward instead of forward and pasted existing technology into an old design because they didn't know what else to do with it. To me this doesn't make sense.

@ Zerrega, you make some good points, but, they DO make retro cars... VW Beetle, Mini Cooper, Mustang, Camaro, Charger and Challenger. So, in some sectors, there is a market for it; but you're right, no one will be making old Televisions and planes anytime soon.

john hulland: I think it incredible that canon call this an enthusiasts camera at £3000.

I'm not so sure that Canon does call it an "enthusiasts" camera. Dpreview does that; they do it all of the time, not just with Canon cameras, but also with some Nikon Models. No problem, I just choose to disagree with them, it's easy to do, because they're wrong! :-)
