Congratulations! Abhinav, look froward to your posts in picture a day thread with the new camera.
See how much premium we pay here in USA! and for what? It's the same frigging D700, doesn't come with more bling bling when bought in USA, does it?
On 25 December 2011 at Adorama $2699.95
On 25 December 2011 at B&H $2699.95
In December 2011 in India $2100.00
For a $700.00 difference it is a rip-off for the naive USA fanboys who frequently proclaim "You got to pay a premium for using the best". Not knowing that the best is screwing them left, right and center.
If anything USA fanboys should learn to give Nikon some tough love. I am not suggesting a La Occupy protest, but message boards and forum like this are a major source for feedback. Stop being a lovey-dovey 15 year old running to defend his/her crush at a drop of a hat.
$700 is not peanuts, It's much more than even a significant difference (actually a whopping 26% discount).
