| p.1 #5 · Why not wait for real world results from D800 and D800E |
I see too many posts to even count where people are asking for opinions on the D800 versus the D800E or which lens to get or what printing will be like from the files or how much of a problem Moire or specular highlights is going to be and it is to a large degree a foolish quest.
The D800 will ship in March and the D800E in April. By June there will be many people using both cameras and posting about their experiences and we will have real world data that may be statistically not relevant but a heck of a lot better than anyone's opinion at this point in time.
I understand and appreciate the anxiety as to which model to buy and not wanting to make a mistake but I have been waiting for 3 years for a worthwhile successor to the D3. I can wait a few more months to learn more about the performance characteristics of both cameras, and to have first hand experience with at least one of them.
The constant posts stem from the fact that, frankly with Nikon's history, if you don't have one pre-ordered by now, you may have to wait a long time before you can get one. There's a lot of people who really want the camera and would be happy to make a purchase when they see the results - but waiting till then might mean you'll have your D800 next year...
