Upload & Sell: Off
Hate to sound like an Apple fanboy (which I am not) but there is a reason why people line up outside Apple stores to get their hands on the latest and greatest Apple products. Nikon doesn't seem to realize that by being customer antagonistic like this slowly erodes away the positive brand loyalty one has for their brand. Of course, the Apple fanboys who line up in the snow 48 hours before the store opens are extreme. But, below that tip of the iceberg, lies a huge and loyal Apple following.
Nikon, by not saying a word on the widely reported D600 dust issue, and the D800 left-focus issue, is not helping themselves. Releasing a "speed bump" upgrade mid-cycle leave a bad feeling with the early adopters. Sure, camera gear is not an "investment" in the traditional sense. But it is not unreasonable to expect one's gear to hold its value or depreciate in a reasonable way.
Instead of making people want to line up for their next camera release, Nikon just made more people want to wait-and-see the next time they release a camera. Stupid, if you ask me.
