Re: D800 delivery update (UK)

I dunno, would it really help to have the Nikon UK leader's head on a pike, when the shortage of D800s is clearly global in nature?

It doesn't sound to me like Jessup's has handled it any worse than, say, Amazon or B&H, both of who have no clue when D800s will arrive.

Nikon in general seems to treat huge retailers poorly. In the USA, no retailer, big or small, is discounting the D4 or D800 more than a token amount to make them look sort of good. So my retailer sells the D4 for $5,996 while retail is $5,999. Big deal, eh?

Seems to me small local retailers is the best way to go no matter what country you're in, since the huge dealers don't seem to have any advantage in supply over smaller ones.
