I don't think anyone can answer that question right now.

We have been hearing about the Nikon 8800 for many months and only within the past few days have a very few people in Europe been able to buy one. You can place orders for them now, but don't expect immediate delivery.

I checked two Nikon forums and there are no sample photos to be seen. There are no professional reviews of that camera, only pre-views. Again, no sample photos.

To be able to compare the Nikon 8800 to any other camera, you will have to wait until customers actually get their hands on the camera.
