$100 off isn't exactly a "big" price drop...

This may be the optimized studio/landscape offering from Canon. The specs certainly look very good. I particularly like that ISO 25 feature.
According to one reviwer who must not be named , the Nikkor 16-35 F4 is noticeably sharper than the 14-24 f2.8. That tells me that Canon needs to work hard on their Zooms.... looking at the TSE 24, we know they can do it.
I guess all bodies with the light leakage issue dropped in price. So one can find a body for $3000 in US online.
However, B&H sells newer version and the price is as of today $35000.
Cheaper version: 5260A002
B&H verision: 5260B002
Not 100% sure, but pretty much convinced about the statements above.
It´s true that the 5D Mark III is only better in speed and AF.
But I don´t like the image quality from the D800E. In my opinion it´s not advisable to put more than 30 megapixels on a FF chip.
If you compare the image quality from the D800E with the image quality of a medium format camera the D800E loose, because the image is totally unsharp. But it´s all a question what are you willing to pay for the best image quality.
It seems that the only way to buy from this American company, is to buy directly
None on eBay and no dealers
Question 1: Is there a "cheaper" way, or a way to get a discount on new stuff?
Question 2: Are UK VAT and duties, a guaranteed consequence on all imports from them
I am intending to buy the TVC-24 Tripod with BH-40 LR Ballhead
I needed some other stuff from themWith other attachments
So, the bill kept mounting
Add to that over $100 shipping
The total amounted to just over £1000,, before VAT and Duties
Which gave me a sort of heart attack
Now the D800 exists so that is now the yard stick by which every other DSLR of that form factor will be measured when it comes to IQ.
