    HI Guy
    I think Bob's ordered two - as you're his boss around here I'm sure that you'll be able to lever one out of his hands.
    (sorry to shop you Bob).

    Just this guy you know

    Guy,

    I know it will not help you in the US - but IO ordered a D800E from my local dealer "Foto Soyka here in Vienna."

    Should arrive early April this year.

    Guy, have you kept a few pieces of Nikon glass? I got the impression that you were IQ160 for pretty much everything these days. Cheers

    Re: Nikon D800 pre-orders

    You fellas are pretty brave pre ordering a new product without trying it out.....
    What makes you guys want to buy this camera blind?

    Just curious... I've never understood the pre order thing.

    Now don't get me wrong... I'm an early adopter of new things... was the first to buy a Fuji gx680, but only after a studio demo...

    I have not seen any sample images from the D800 that blow me away...

    When the D700 and 5D Mark 2 were released, I certainly didn't see anything that blew me away, however, both new replacements have enough improvements for upgrades for me personally. I also don't believe there is a perfect camera, just for different needs, and I certainly belong to the DSLR cabin with my glass being that way.

    Re: Nikon D800 pre-orders

    Well I may be looking for one. I got my order in very late than decided to make a big switch up of gear . Now it's a need. I'll probably wind up with both models at some point.

    I have to see about unloading a bunch of server gear to fund a D800E + MB-D12 + EN-EL18 batteries. Once I do that, I can get myself on someone's list.
