Re: E-5 vs OMD vs D800 - part 2

When I went from the E-3 to the D700, I felt the same as you. For example, I was horrified to find that the D700's CF card door was plastic, and there was no turn lock. I thought that was incredibly cheap of Nikon.

In fact E-3 card door is fully plastic (it only looks like metal), however Nikon D700 have metal hinge, so in this case I would say Nikon door is more robust.

I am "metal" guy, I would like everything metal however the truth is that modern "engineered plastic" can be very robust and in some applications obviously more suitable than metal.
