    $3500 list price for a 4.1 megapixel DSLR, when a 6.3 megapixel
    Digial Rebel lists for $899? I could see perhaps a $500 4.1 megapixel
    digital slr, but not a $3500 one. Why is this camera so expensive? Just
    because of the 8 frames/second?

    8 fps, 40 frame buffer, integrated vertical grip, brand new sensor design by
    Nikon for speedy transfer of images, wireless FTP transmission of images,
    among others. Megapixels aren't everything. Read the review, the D2H is
    clearly aimed at a different market than the D-Reb.

    Why is this camera so expensive? Just
    Basically, yes. Also the large (I believe 40 frame) buffer.
    Sports/news photographers are more interested in the frame rate and buffer
    size than the higher megapixels because of the quality of most newspapers.
    (Atleast that seems the opinion of my daughter's boyfriend who works for the
    Post and AP and was looking at the D2H to replace his D1X and D1H.)

  5. Hold a D2H in your hand and shoot a few frames, then do the same with a
    drebel. The drebel will feel like a plastic toy by comparison.

    The D2H is aimed at photojournalists that need a robust body, vertical grip,
    fast frame rates and large buffer. They won't be enlarging beyond the size
    of the cover of Sports Illustrated, so 6mp isn't needed, and would impair
    the frame rate/storage/image transfer.
