>A great post on D800 for those of us who yearn to own one at

What do you mean yearn to own... it's a cautionary tale for those who do own as well, and are hearing that voice in our head already.

True story -- it caused me to buy a 24-70 that I had every intention to wait. I got the camera completely unexpectedly while travelling, then here I was with this body, and no lens, and not going to be home for a solid week. And every few weeks in my manic/depressive cycle (otherwise known as NAS or NOT NAS), I wanted that lens, then decided to wait for a VR variant.

The D800 voice in my head pushed me over the edge, dropped by Calumet (sadly here I was in Chicago with a real camera store nearby) and now I have a lens I never intended to buy, and my investment just went up like 70%.

And today thinking of ordering new CF and SD cards.

Everything in that skit is true. It's not fiction. Beware!!!!
