Re: Feeling jipped with D600 39-pt AF?

What annoys me is the way Nikon cripple lesser cameras to have the image of their better cameras being superior technology.

I understand that if they put the 51pt AF system in the D600 along with the 1/8000 max shutter speed and 1/250 sync speed, it would detract sales from the D800.

But instead of crippling the D600 to separate it from the D800, why not improve the D800? Create a 61 point AF system like Canon has for the 5D MKIII, make it sync at 1/500, etc

The argument that the D7100 is a flagship DX camera and warrants the 51point system and the D600 is an entry level FX camera means it doesn't deserve the best technology is stupid and overly analysing the situaton.

The simple way to look at it is they are both DSLR's from the same manufacturer the more expensive one shouldn't have less technology than the cheaper one in any way shape or form.
