Nikons top pro camera - the only camera they have with really good AF and high fps - gives in crop mode 16:2,25 i.e. only 7,1MP in crop mode, when the really good sensor on D7000 gives 16,2MP - more than the double. But the D7000 doesn't have a magensium front plate (necessary with heavy lenses) and is not very reliable because of too low building quality.

D800? 4 fps also ridiculous.

D600 - also lacking magnesium front plate, and also give only 10,7MP in DX size.

We need a D4 with the sensor of the D800.

We need a fully magnesium bodied D400 with the sensor of D7000 or better, with AF-system from D4 and at least 8 fps.

Then we are talking!

A very selfless post, Thank you

For those of us who are trying to make a living from photography
We would be happy to capture a Selling frame every minute never mind every one second.
So don't sweat the small stuff, life's very short, 10 fps wont save you, not even 1 fps will.
There are cameras like the Red which will do all you want and more. 
For those of use of modest means D4's and D800's will do just fine.
The flagship is neither camera it's the D4X all you need worry about then is Funding it.

For that you'll need to start at the top again.....We need
