I always used to say to anyone who asked my opinion as to which camera to buy, that you couldn't really go wrong with the likes of Nikon and Canon, their cameras these days are incredible tools. Now though, I couldn't recommend a Nikon product, my advice would be to look at Canon or failing that one of the other manufactures, but not Nikon.What a shame! I've had the D100, D200, D3 and now D800 along with many lenses and flashes etc, but I won't be encouraging anyone else to potentially go down this path.This policy of Nikon USA to not sell parts nor allow anyone else to repair YOUR camera along with some of their extortionate prices on accessories (£350 for the D800 grip!!!) means I would advice anyone to look elsewhere.
....and 6 months later, where is the in depth review? It's very poor that it is taking so long to get the review done and online, especially since this is what this site is supposed to do, DP review??
