Well, it seems that shortages have been a blessing in disguise for some people, that's for sure. I know that if it was me and I learned about the camera issues I would definitely hold off buying D800 or went with another camera. I think people should be really careful when considering or purchasing D800. While $3000 for some may seem like it's not much or a good price, in reality and in this economy $3000 is a LOT of money. And if you don't get a product that works as it suppose to then spending this much money should be thought about very hard.
