The two photos don't look like the same body/model to me, The PCB Broad in the middle looks totally different to me.

In my view, the fundamental question is whether the tape fix actually blocks the light from leaking. Has anyone tested this?

i think this one is a REAL issue...

I also heard there are some AF issues that actually needs fixing.

My friend hasn't whined about anything. He only got it two days ago.

Not sure why you quoted me about this - I was just replying to the previous post :)

Check out the lensrental.com dissection of a Nikon D7000 and see how this camera is routinely manufactured using tape. Yes tape just like that tape people are still howling about here.

thank you, i am just pointing out that nikon also has problems but you don't really see them whine online as much as canon users... canon users on the other hand... is making a big deal out of this light leak situation (sorry, i can't say it's an issue)

There are probably trolls also.  When you're at the top someone always wants to take you down. ;)

Now that's a serious problem. Unlike a silly light leak, a blurry viewfinder affects every single shot you take, and renders a camera useless unless you use live view for every shot. I'm sure Nikon will get all these issues with the D800 sorted out eventually, but perhaps it's $500 cheaper than the 5DIII due to inferior quality control? I don't think low ISO DR is all that important if you can't take an sharp image due to a blurry viewfinder.

After studying the two images, it would appear that the case is completely different in shape and structure and also that the internals are quite different.

Is the author suggesting that these two images are both 5D MK III's ?

Despite any quality control issues with the D800, it still poses a MASSIVE problem for Canon. Even if Canon could produce a profitable sensor with DR, resolution and ISO performance comparable to the D800 (and that seems a big if), how could they sell it at a competitive price without blitzing the sales of the already-more-expensive 5D mk III? I've been a lifelong Canon fan, and would still buy a 5D mk III, but for customers with little or no prior brand loyalty...

Canon's marketing AND tech departments must be sweating bullets, unless something big is on the way. This reminds me of the ever-raging war between video card manufacturers AMD and Nvidia. Sometimes when one company starts lagging behind, it's a sign that they're working on something really revolutionary.

As good as the D800 is, it doesn't help Nikon if they can't get them into people's hands. Now, Nikon always had a more problematic supply issue compared to Canon and the latest crop of problems are probably not helping much.

Are you serious?  I mean really?  One is taken in poor light, one is in studio light and at a diffrent angle.

Agreed. But If Canon doesn't step up their game on DR and ISO, I might actually do the unthinkable and buy a Nikon at some point in the future. I shoot landscape and DR is the single most important thing to me even though I prefer the feel, ergonomics and just plain "Canonosity" of Canon cameras. I wonder if Canon has considered buying Sony sensor tech and if Sony would/could even sell it to them given their relation with Nikon.
