| p.1 #12 · When will Canon catch up with Nikon in prices. |
Guess my predictions of Nikon dropping the prices of the camera bodies in order to gain market share and gouge customers was correct. Here is one the first examples of Nikon using that strategy. Even if you allow the dedicated TC $1,000 that still makes the lens 17K, 4k more than the Canon equivalent that was released in 2008.
Maybe we can stop debating the prices of camera bodies between manufacturers since you need to consider the cost of the entire system over the lifetime of ownership.
Looking at your lens lineup...why do you even care what the price of this lens is at? It's sort of like complaining about the prices of ferraris when you drive ladas. What is the purpose of your post?[/quote]
There is a new Nikon lens announcement thread on the Nikon forum. This kind of a thread probably belongs there.
What is relevant here to us Canon gear users is that...
(1) Nikon could be setting a new standard of 800mm lens performance excellence which migh push Canon in that direction as well, which is a good thing.
(2) Canon might rethink their current 800L pricing, which is not so good for those who are looking at getting the lens some day.
