Default Sony A7RII versus Nikon D810. What's wrong with this?

Looking at the two of them, using them. Anyone wonder why the Sony
costs as much as the Nikon? Because it sure doesn't seem like it
should. The Nikon just screams quality, from the body to the button
and switch quality. The Sony seems like an increased size version
of their APS bodies. I'm probably wrong, I don't know what the
relative costs are, but it's just what it seems like.


The Sony has more of a quality feel to it, with its metal body instead of the
plastic in the Nikon.

The Nikon, of course, is more comfortable to hold and use, and more logical
controls. To each his own

Which part of the D810 is plastic?


The little red thing.

The body. You know, the part made of plastic. It's pretty hard to miss.

It's metal. It comes out of the foundry with sharp corners and looks
just like a Sony, then fettlers get to work with files and sandpaper and
work for hours just to make them look like plastic.

Put some ducktape over it to preserve some of the initial value of your
investment!

The 'Duck uses "duct tape", or "gaffer tape".

Whatever! Don't the 'tape to hard or the little birdie might fall of
then you are removing it (the tape) for the drop of the gear on the 'bay
or something!
