Don't take me so seriously, I don't ;). But if you think about it, a D800 with a 16MP DX crop (6fps) replaces the D7000 for reach/action (better AF as well) and you still get FF FOV if needed. Besides, I bet the video will be much better than the D7000's. And IQ in high ISO will be better as well, basically 1 stop at same printing sizes, likely for DR.

I don't yet understand if/what I'd be losing by doing this. But assuming I would gain the ability to continue using my DX lenses in crop mode AND use my FF lenses in either mode without losing anything vs the D7000 then I would be tempted to do the same.

I hope the D800 is a little bit smaller than the D700 though (I think I read that it would be but I'm not sure).
