I've been dying to buy the D800 because that's the camera I've been waiting for but after seeing all the complaints I decided to wait for its successor and for Nikon to get their s**t together. It's too bad because Nikon did have a great reputation and deservedly so during their film years.



Personally I think you've shot yourself in the foot.

There's a lot of hysteria, a lot of false information, a lot of trolling, etc. If you've delayed a purchase of something as great as a D800 based on this forum, you've done yourself a disservice.

I fully understand, but unless you can't return it or are facing a restocking fee, what's the real danger?

Go for it! Sometimes you just have to choose the path forward:
