Re: Emphasis On Price Seems Appropriate

What would be the price you'd have kept your order? 5,500, 6,000, ... ?

At US$4999, most would have found it to be an excellent value, I think. At US$7999 most seem to find it to be a poor value. Thus, the "right point" is somewhere in between those two, I suspect. Personally, I would have found US$6499 to be okay. But even at that price I would have still written that Nikon needs to do something different in terms of customer relations at the top of the lineup.

Re the review, I think Thom spent too much on the price issue. It's
beaten to death now.

The problem is that you may see the price issue in the narrow confines of a forum like this one. I can't make the assumption that someone who is coming into my review has seen the ad nauseum discussions, and six months from now those discussions may be invisible (maybe ; ).

Get the facts, report of IQ issues, compare to a
25MP P25 back to see if Nikon claims to MF ability are true.

I've only been able to compare against a 30mp back without AA filter, and then only briefly in a casual shoot. There's something still to be said for more pixels without AA ; ).
