There's no reason a high-speed, action-oriented, weather-sealed, crop-sensor D400 can't coexist at the same, or even slightly higher price point than an entry-level full-frame body. After all, the 1D2, 1D3 and 1D4 both managed to coexist with the 5D and 5D2.

Alsoi, I'd hardly call the D800 a 'mid-level' body. Mid-priced, maybe, but it has all the features of the top-level D3x and 1Ds3 updated for 2012, plus more. Just that the price point for that sort of camera has fallen (no-one was willing to pay twice as much as the 5D2 for a few extra features), leaving only the high-speed action bodies at the higher price point, since sports photographers are willing to pay for them.

I agree... They (Nikon) could have easily charged more for the 800, since Canon has the price increase (craze) with every new release for L or DSLR's 1d/5Dx...

What they did was smart releasing it at $3,000... I wonder what the 600 is going to sell for.
I paid full price to get the 5d3, etc. I'm happy with it over the 5d2, but with all things said, $3500 was a slightly steep, etc.


Nikon D4, Sony RX10, Sony RX100.
Past Gear: (most recently) 5D3, L's, etc.

The D700 resale value is looking out to share the same slope as RIM's stock price.

A 5D3 killer ? Should be at something like 1000$/1000€ less...

Actually, how many of you think the $1500 rumor can be true? I find it hard to believe. Because for that spec, even for $2000, it will sell like hot cakes, compared to the $3000 D800 and the $3500 5D III.

Also, if it is really $1500 for a FF, no one will buy the D7000 or Nikon will need to lower the price. And the price of all other brands like Canon 7D, Sony A77 will need to be lowered.

However, when I see the rumors about 61 pt AF for the 5D III, I find it hard to believe, but it turns out to be true ... so, I don't know. If it turns out really $1500, it will be a killer.

WHy would anyone even buy a D800 if that price/spec was true. There's like 1% of the population that really cares about having 36MP.

pricing is hard to believe, but Nikon has a history of crazy pricing.

The enthusiast level D70 undercut the entry level Rebel/300D.
D3X was the chart topping Japanese DSLR at 8k USD.

$2000 seems feasible. besides the 24mp sensor, nothing about the d600 stats is revolutionary or new for Nikon. looks like bits from already used in their older cameras. D700 at $2.6k has better specs (except sensor maybe) and its 5 years old.

it seems like Nikon is really starting a fight to get market share lately, however in the end they end up hurting all the companies, including themselves, as they will all need to lower their prices to compete thus the whole industry suffers lower profits.

However as consumers we gain as things might cost less.

Even if the price of the D600 is around 2500$, it's 1000$ less than 5DIII and with 24MP with great dynamic range, it would be a serious concurrent... Maybe Canon should then rethink the 5DIII price.
