Seriously? I can't imagine anyone who has a dog hunting in this forum giving a cr@p about how Nikon stacks up against Sony who isn't even in the actual DSLR bidness any longer. In terms of their real competition, Canon has 3 FF cameras too. If you want see agonized ownership, look in on the Canon forum to see how many are lamenting the absence of a D800/E competitor. Of course, they get shouted down by the fanbois there too. Whining about Nikon's 3 camera FF line-up simply seems surreal.

Agreed! People are really spoiled, I recall when Nikon had two boides, the Nikon F(2) and the Nikkormat. And it was the best of worlds for photogs!

The above link is a broader brush (lambasting IMHO) and although I may not agree with everything he says 100%, I can see his points pretty clearly.

Where some have indicated that KR sounded "drunk" or "trollish" Hogan sounds sober and concise to me. His points are clear and his criticisms seem pretty spot on. The things he left out in his scathing article was the apparent drop in the quality of Nikon's customer service and the pullback of consumer replaceable parts.

As far as the original point/original post, Hogan also has an article similar to KR's and again Hogan makes some very valid points: - like what is a D600 worth???
