Sam Carriere: Interesting that although your scoring system has changed, you appear to score this behemoth lower than the D700.All of which is academic in any event. With Nikon's usual "lets create a buzz that boosts demand but dis-respects consumers" philosophy, the camera effectively remain unavailable and, according to my sources, will not be available until the fall. The camera, in other words, effectively does not exist and will not for many more months.The only way to punish manufacturers who do this, is to move along and buy something else, if buying a new camera is what you wish to do.
Yup, it seems really that this scored lower than its older brother D700 that's why the later was omitted in the drop down of comparable models.
Now it's becoming clear that customers will be better off buying older D700 absent desire for higher pixel count.
Even against 5dM2, the quality difference in Raw and JPEG wasn't that significant hence wouldn't be noticeable at all. And although D800 seems to beat 5dM2 in low light / high ISO performance, you get that compensated on better movie/video mode on canon's older 5dM2.
One of my friend already bought new 5dM2 to take advantage of it's discounted price these days and I think people should really consider older models before jumping in to these market-hyped newer models.
Magnus3D: A totally ridicilous amount paid for what's only a temporary hype with washed out bad looking photos of uninteresting things. Facebook made a facepalm once again..
Agree with you Royal. IG itself is a very strong potential threat to FB or any competitor who would try to acquire it.
