"Fact check"

I've been reading a lot of these d800 threads and it's fascinating to see all of the predictions, condemnations, criticisms and complaints about features on a camera most members here have never seen.

One guy even asked how many will ship in the first batch from Nikon (300,136) and I especially enjoy the earthquake/tsunami damage and production impact assessments.

I believe they will ship 300,136 in the first batch, flooding the market, dropping the price by $500 within 13 days of launch. People will reject the camera due to its inferior qualities compared to the d700. Then after strange sores develop, the CDC will find the bodies are radioactive, introducing noise to the sensor and subjecting customers to the equivalent of 400 chest X-rays during a baketball game shoot, destroying sperm in male shooters and causing female shooters to have fertility problems and lose their hair.

And the ISO performance will prove only 1/2 percent better than the d700.

If you have a d700 and you think the d800 sucks, the only stat you have is frame rate.

B&h told me they have never seen such pre launch demand. The market is speaking louder and more clearly than the crystal ball-rubbing that's going on here.

My only concern with the d800 is whether I will get one before march 16. The local camera shop says shipping begins late feb. according to Nikon. The store lady said Nikon always lies about the ship date.

I can't wait to shoot some test shots of my kitty cat, brick walls and light bulbs. (I buy cameras for Pixel comparisons and chat forum ammo, not actual photography.)

I've owned the D200, d300 and D700 and none of those was a step back. During that time I have shed the dx lenses and invested in a nice batch of Nikon's best primes and zooms. I can't wait for this crappy, slow high res, hd video, stereo audio camera to arrive. Good riddance to the spectacular D700.

If you think the d800 sucks, good! Leaving fewer people in line ahead of me is aok.
