"RE: D800 and photo trek leaders"

I was just looking at the spreadsheet that I use for evaluating/comparing photo treks and shooting workshops, and it occurred to me that I typically spend as much or more on each trip as I spent on one D800e. With that much money at stake and the fact that the trip only happens once, I really should spend as much time and effort selecting a trip as I spent evaluating and selecting the D800e in the first place.

Many professional photographers are turning to treks and workshops as a way to make money since the market for images has started to dry up. I believe that trend will continue, and will put pressure on trek/workshop leaders to improve the quality of their trips or reduce costs or both.

I also believe someone somewhere will eventually put together a published report on treks and workshops just like we see for camera bodies. Think of it as a DxOMark for treks. Each trek and workshop will be compared head-to-head.

Now that would be a forward thinking service for D800 and all Nikon camera owners. What do you folks think? Anyone up for the task?
