Comments about the throughput speed of the new card standard are most exciting to me of anything in this review. Of course, if its so great, I'm left grumbling about why there aren't 2 slots for them.

And how many more people would be left grumbling about no backwards compatibility and all their useless CF cards if that wasn't included? Smart move on Nikon's part to introduce the new format without forcing it on people in my opinion.

So if backwards compatibility is the excuse for the D4 screw up, what's the excuse for the D800 mismatch? Still see a "smart move" in there somewhere? Especially given how likely it is for lots of folks to want to use both together? Sorry, I don't see anything but a screw up in both.
