Boy was that wrong...
Try a starting price of $2,199. To be fair, that is considerably cheaper than the D800 selling on B&H and Amazon right now for $2,999. But it certainly made people waiting for this puppy to utter expletives in unison across the planet. And that, for the moment, may dominate the headlines for the time being. Sad really, because the camera looks to be a good one.
In time, that reality will sink in. I am sure by the time these hit the shelves, they will be be flying off them just as fast as they get there.
