Actually...

You will be able to map that AF-L/AE-L button to do AF-on just like you could even with the super old D80.

As for FPS, the D800 will shoot at 5.9 FPS at 25MP, which is still more resolution than any other FF camera available currently. I realize that is 1 FPS slower than your D300S, but for most I do not expect that to be a deal breaker. The D600 at 5.5 FPS, yes, not as fast, but 6fps is fast enough for most (same as D300 w/o grip).

I agree a D4 sensor in a D800 body with 8FPS would be interesting, but then who would buy a D4? I'm not sure Nikon will pull the same move they did with the D700/D3, I think it cost them a lot of D3 sales.
