    With "preorders" becoming the norm, camera companies have thousands and thousands of willing beta testers.

    The plastic of the film advance lever on my OM-1 cracked and fell off after less than 35 years

    No bombs though...

    All my cameras have anti alien filter. That's the reason why there are no UFOs in my photos

    Exactly, and like them I can only imagine all the "what ifs". I guess "could of", "would of", "should of" basically describes the situation. Knowing my luck, as superb as the D800 appears to be, the D800E will be a complete dud, with every image dominated with moire that is impossible to remove... Serves me right!

    The D800e has a built-in moire generator :-)
