    Looks like a used D3 or another D700 is in my near future ;)

    Wait... They're taking the low pass filter out, aka removing a component of the camera, and that causes the price to jump up $300 when you are getting less? How does that work? Lol

    Same reason a fisheye costs 5 times as much as a nifty fifty..... lower demand.

    I wonder what the ISO performance is. I wonder if it could actually be worse than the D700.

    I'm non-plussed. The D4 priced itself out of my reach, and the 36mp of this cubical egg makes me puke.

    Well same sensor as D4 and they couldn't let it perform as well. Had to throw an extra handful of pixels at it?

    If i read correctly, yes. The D800 will offer better cropability at the cost of ISO performance. Smart to not over shadow the D4 this time.D800 is aimed at the consumer more than the prosumer..

    Unfortunatly, I don't see too many people rushing to trade in their D700 for this 36MP, 4fps beast so the price probably won't drop as much as I was hoping.

    I'm not too worried though, by the time I accumulate the quality glass I wanna get before I upgrade to FX the D4S will probably be in the bargain been. :lol:
