I had to think about that for a bit. They only recommend three DSLRs, one from each of the three majors? And they pick two FF $2,000 plus cameras and the k-30? That is a very rarefied group to belong to. The implication being the k-30 is almost as good and costs less than half. Wow!

A bit of a tangent but how the hell is the 5D Mark II in anyway related to school. What does a kid need a D800 for? It used to be back to school meant sales on pencils, calculators and the like. You know, stuff you actually need for school!

Now it's just another time in the year to get consumers shopping. Fridges, toasters, cars, it doesn't matter anymore.

Huh, if I ever got cameras for going back to school I might actually feel going was worth my while.
And clearly every 14 year old needs a D800. I mean, how else will they make hand-held self portraits from odd angles for facebook.

Maybe back to college? Four year photography major?

Yeah I know I'm reaching. More likely just a way to plug Canikon FF and pull page views.
