| p.1 #20 · interesting cost for d800 left af |
very disappointed with the way Nikon has treated us with the d800 left af issue. Really sucks to cram it down our throats with an inflated repair bill that comes with a warning to not buy gray market. It is giving me a foul taste.
I do agree that he D700 is king of the hill, reliable professional workhorse with a tradition of outstanding service. Was it the same Nikon that built it? I think not, the D5100, D3200, D7000 are plastic soulless shells full of Sony electronics. The D7000 grip is too shallow and when gripped, the thumb rests on the video button. Some Sony/Nikon person thought the camera was a video machine so put the video button where the af button should me. Silly me for not understanding how the camera functions, I thought it was a digital still camera first.
My D7000 and all the Canon gear is sold. The Sony NEX-7 did not work out. My hunt for a camera is looking at Canon or Pentax K5. Very disappointed, I have a lead on a great deal on a used d800 but cannot afford malfunctioning pro cameras.
