    You can’t compare this to the d800. The Nikon is like a toy. Like comparing a Bristol car to a Mondeo, they’re oth cars……. The Nikon may have large files but they re not the same and people should get over having camera envy. The Nikon is fine but not anywhere like the S and people that buy the S, do so for different reasons than the people who buy the Nikon.

    Stop comparining and go and take some pictures.

    I have neither. I’m a Canon man, and I’m happy at that.
