Just for S___s and giggles. What do you guys think? So far Amazon the 5D Mark III is number one on the digital SLR best sellers list. The D800 isn't even on the top 50. Is this any indication?
remember the D800 came out earlier. It sold out in less than 24 hours. by now all the orders are in so off course it is not going to track as high on the list given its initial rush is now over. conversely the 5DIII just started its mad rush.
you realize the 5DmkIII will be outsold by several point and shoots by the tens of thousands right? if it does or doesn't outsell a camera that isn't even competing in the same category, who cares? are you buying the camera because of how it outsells or doesn't?
The D800 is aimed at a different type of audience so I wouldn't let its sales factor into any decision I make.
If you want accurate sale figures wait for the various market research surveys on marketshare that will be out next year....then again, such numbers are worthless for they say nothing about a camera.
