I did a search on Delkin, and found some stores with a warning that they were incompatible with the D800. It sounds like a firmware update is needed.

First of all they would be purchased by me from an authorised dealer with full receipt etc. They are definitely not stolen, I just think the shop in question has made a mistake with the price.
I had not thought of sending them to the US. I will have to look into how much it would cost to send there.
Aieeee! Great help folks, thanks!
Mt. Spokane (my parents live in Spokane BTW, I visit there often) thanks for the info. I will definitely send this lens in for repair. I had thought it was much more expensive.
On the Voigtlander, I didn't know these lenses existed! The Voight 20mm looks like the bomb, my dream focal length! Pancake! A little slow and MF but I can deal with that.
How is it with a FF Canon 5D? My credit card is practically out on this one!!
EDIT: Or the zeiss 18mm! It's not too big, and close to my ideal focal length, thoughts on these two lenses?
PS. The Sigma 30mm isn't for FF.
First, congratulations on your keen interest in photography. Sounds to me like you have a good attitude toward learning and enough confidence to try new things. Don't let negative ninny type comments discourage you. Focus on what is possible! The winners in life take chances.
I just picked up a 7D for $1300 CAD which is about 1260USD. If you guys were me, would you guys return it and wait for th 70D? I just use it for travel pictures and want to get into video making. Based on the MSRP of the 50D, the 70D would be around $1400USD?
i'm actually recovering some raws right now i accidently deleted one i didnt want to on the weekend
Thanks for your question. Cards were NOT taken from a Canon and placed into a Nikon without first attempting to format in the Nikon. (Been doing this a couple of decades now, ahem...) But that is indeed a good point to be heeded by newbies. I bought two other brand new cards in the store and NEITHER OF THEM would format in the D800 except my Sandisk Extreme IVs. I have enough experience under my belt to have been caught in situations where the cards I brought along were lost/stolen and I had to use what ever I could get my hands on. I have probably taken it for granted that my cameras so far have never had CF card issues. Today, that is something that should be taken for granted if anything is. The main point is that we should not even be having this discussion in 2012 - and particularly not about a $3000.00 camera from Nikon. I cannot trust it. Would you take an exotic new car that wouldn't start all the time on an important trip? Or would you hop in something that you knew was going to get you there?
PM me cosedi, I've a few spare licenses for Sandisks Rescue Pro. It lasts for 1 year, and you'll need an SD card reader. In the meantime DO NOT use the card.
Do they care? Do they even have a plan to produce some sort of completion to the d800?
