Some need/want an Hummer others a Porsche.... What do you really hope to get with this ?

For me after few test drives the 10/11 FPS was more interesting than pixels/resizing etc. etc. etc. Yes for 3,000 more that was more important!

I have to admit the D3s to D4 was very incremental but still enough to seduce me

I owned the d3s for a couple years. I rented a d800 for a week to see if I wanted to purchase it and it did not suit my style of photography. I shoot a lot of wildlife, mostly birds and bif.

I don't print big and needed a fast frame camera to be used with my long telephoto lens. I sold my d3s and bought the d4 and haven't looked back. I love the additional exterior button for changing setting fast, the d4 feels better in my hands and balances better with my Nikon 500 on a tripod. If I don't crop too much, then the 16 mp's is plenty for me.
