Agree ... sounds more like a D4X

Agree ... 36mp's would be highly targeted machine needed by a select group or pro's and serious amatuers who would invest in the lenses and computer hardware to go along with it. Much more likely in a D4X.

The D700 is more of a general use "jack of all trades" body, which appeals not only to pro's and amatuers, but many hobbyiests as well. I would think Nikon would maintain that in the D800.

And since the D800 will be a small body version of the yet unannounced D4, any new body in that line up announced before a D4 would be more likely a D700 varient, such as an s or X. The timing for that would be logical: D4 and D700 varient in late 2011, D800 in mid 2012.
