I would hope for seeing both D400 and D750 cameras with actual Pro rugged bodies and real Professional AF system like D700, D300s, D3, D800. It seems that Nikon has put more importance lately into mass production of cameras (except for D800, D4) with lower quality bodies and lower quality AF systems like D7000 and D600 because it cost less to make and they could sell more, where the main draw was just the sensor quality and high MP for the most part (not the rugged pro body). It also seems like higher MP was picked to out spec the Canon top line. Hopefully Nikon will return to pro camera build quality in new releases, like earlier 2 models of D300 and D700 with reasonable 16-24MP for much faster speed and adequate smaller file sizes for event (or sports, action/wildlife) shooters who would more likely prefer this in an upgrade.
