Well, I commend him for putting the body through its paces and reporting on things here that we're all obviously interested in (at least you seem to be?)
I appreciate that he's being frank about a purchase - a lot of times people spend that kind of money and then can find no wrong with it because they spent that kind of money on it.
I for one am very interested in the D800 but if there is issues with LiveView, then it's a huge deal to some of us.
We've heard over and over again how the D800 is so great and how horrible the 5D3 is in comparison, and important megapixels are and how important an extra stop of dynamic range is, etc...
And yet, a possible issue comes up with it, that could potentially have far more impact on normal people than those trivial items, and yet people seem to want to sweep it under the rug or dismiss it by claiming its no biggie and will be fixed with a firmware update. Well, to some, this could be a big show stopper and I for one think it's worth discussing and hearing more first hand reports from people who actually have the body and aren't just enamored with the spec sheet.
Todd, you don't need to explain yourself. I certainly commend him for his efforts in posting what could be possibly an isssue. There has to be an explanation why LV behaves this way but, I don't have one in my hands to know that myself. You should know by now that I'm a jokester. And since when did you become interested in Nikon?
