Now I see the second hand market is littered with D800s, but try and find a used 5D mk3. If the DR of the Sony chip is so obviously superior why is the market showing discarded D800s ?
have you checked that or pulled it out of your nose?
when i check ebay here i see 19 used D800 and 16 used 5D MK3.
not much of a difference.
Before jumping to conclusions, you might want to check a poster's location . There are actually no 5D MkIIIs available on eBay in the UK, compared to 7 D800s.
yeah well excatly... he jumps to a conclusion without giving any infos about how he came to the conclusion.
im glad you realized it after my posting...
i don´t dare to say a greater percentage of people return the D800.
because i have no hard facts on how many are sold and returned.
maybe the D800 outsells the 5D Mk3 by a factor of 3:1... who knows?
in the end... it´s 600 euro cheaper where i life.
so 19 vs. 16 looks pretty good from my numbers.
but it´s only my numbers as you noticed.
I didn't say he/she didn't jump to conclusions, the difference was the insult, which quite frankly was unnecessary. That's the thing with the internet, it's far too easy to insult someone without the risk of a broken nose
As for the kit, it didn't come up in my search. While it could be argued it is described as new, other, one of the 7 D800s I found was described the same way.
The point is though, that going by a single market and/or selling portal doesn't always give a true reflection of relative numbers. My impression (without any real facts), is that the 5D MkIII has outsold the D800 in the UK, but that would appear not to be the case in other countries. One reason for the impression, is the number of 5D MkIIs and 7Ds that have come on the used market (not necessarily eBay).
