And 645Z is due to start going on sale on June 27.
What a coincidence Nikon will be announcing their camera one day beforehand..

It will surely get Nikon into the #4 spot ahead of Toyota.

You're thinking of the D15.

Well Nikon is owned by Mitsubishi, no?
Will it have the same sensor as the D800?

I thik the D800 had one bug at the start and short lived and much fewer than the new K-3 with its flapping mirror and all.

If real, I like the ISO scroll wheel for those of us who shoot totally manual.

Who cares? The 645Z is supposed to be sold out for the year anyway.

Remember the Datsun 810? It was sort of hunched up and weird looking, in the somewhat mystifying '70's Japanese ideom... but not quite as weird as the B210, a.k.a., the Atomic Cockroach.

I think the D800 had one bug at the start and short lived and much fewer than the new K-3 with its flapping mirror and all.
Actually, the D800 had a problem with focus plane asymmetry in the viewfinder, not fixable via firmware upgrade, of course... AND it had (and still has) a just plain dumb design flaw in the scaling algorythm for downsampling to the resolution of the LCD screen in live view. Other than that, it's perfect.

Not to say the D800 isn't a good camera, but by comparison, the K3's little mirror kerfuffle is just an occasional annoyance* -- if an initially disconcerting one -- and probably (there's some reason to think) about to have its firmware remedy very soon. And the Nikon will still be flawed, even by certain D3300 standards. BTW, what's the "and all" I'm supposed to be worried about?

* Maybe somewhat more than a once-in-a-while annoyance if you're a pro "on the clock", I might concede.

Hmmm.... not that I have a D800, but it doesn't seem like it's worth it to upgrade.
