Re: Nikon P&S cameras don't deserve that logo.

Yep, I'd like the Nikon D800 to cost a penny, and throw in a bunch of long tele at a dime each. But that's unrealistic. And if it was so, that would be the end on camera models with only one model selling for each brand. You have choice with different price cameras that you would not have with all costing the same.

The price of DSLRs reflects the quality of the parts, the durability of the camera, the care in assembly, the range of photography the camera is capable of and so on. There are significant differences in the cost of building a P&S and a DSLR and what they can do.

I haven't asked for Penny and Dime - prices, is this your fantasy or misunderstanding?

These DSLRs are a bit better, but they are unrealistically expensive compared to P&S. These companies make more than enough money, but some tend to get greedy and want to squeeze more out of consumers by asking a lot more for offering a little more.
