I'm glad that's true for you. Why are you still here in Canon land, then? If Nikon is so much cheaper, you should switch. Please.
spoken like a true fanboy.
nobody wrote about switching... i sure don´t.
but if it hurts your fanboy feelings when people dare to say that canon gear is overpriced... i beg your pardon but that´s what many people think.
you obviously donated a great part of your life to canon... and i did not want to make you feel bad with my posting! it was not personal or meant to make other canon users feel bad!
Thanks for that quite offensive post. 'Fanboy' connotes a loss of objectivity, something I assure you I don't suffer from. I've spent far more money on the make of cars my wife and I drive, because they offered the features we wanted...am I a fanboy of that make, as well? (I guess not, because our needs have changed, and the next vehicle will be a different make). I must be a house, 401K, and 529 college fund fanboy, too - way more than Canon judging by my spend in those areas.
The D800 is a better landscape camera (as I've stated before) - and if that was my main shooting interest, I'd buy one (would have done so already, in fact, and not come here whining about it beforehand).
You previously stated, "i can get a D800 for 2289 euro from a big and reputed reseller here in germany (from some smaller shops it´s as low as 2150 euro)," and went on to discuss D600 prices, too...if you aren't even considering switching, why do you even care what Nikon bodies costs? Perhaps as an excuse to whine and complain? At least that's free, so by all means, carry on...
