Me too. I don't need professional FPS, build quality, or AF. hell, coming from the 5d2 this camera will be a god-send. the only gripe I have is all of my CF are useless now. maybe down the road i'll pick up a cheap used DX camera (or FX) that takes CF,too. Thats least of my worries. And regarding the remote, yes some pro snob will get his feathers and crumpets all messy and ruffled. Too bad, this ain't "the old society" in 1812. This is the the digital age in 2012. Technology advancements are lowering prices
It's funny you mention CF cards. I come from a background of shooting with a D50 and D80 mainly, so I don't even have CF cards. My canceled D800 order included one. I'm sure it will have Eye-fi support, too, which is pretty nifty.
I've never understood the pro aversion to less expensive gear. I understand buying a sturdy product, but it makes more sense to me to buy based on my needs, and if there's a cheaper solution that meets them, I'll at the very least consider it. Maybe that's why I don't make most of my money from photography, though, huh? Although I do admit to showing some pro snobbery toward Instagram photographers...
