D4's AF system covers all crop frameRe: 14 shot RAW buffer in Crop mode

According to IR Preview the D7100 has a 14 shot RAW buffer in Crop mode. I suspect most sports/wildlife photographers who would need a larger buffer would use this crop mode most of the time anyways due to less cropping in PP and smaller files to work with.

I think this crop mode is a good option for a cheaper sports/wildlife body. Now they need to upgrade their 100-400 zoom. This still doesn't negate the need for a D400 with 8-10fps and even larger buffer.

Indeed, this crop is a very good feature, especially since the AF points would cover the whole frame, something that would make it the dream camera for action shooters. The release and the site also say the AF system uses D4's algorithms.

And all that for ... 1,199USD. Amazing.

Now, I also agree there is room for a 1,600-1,700 USD D400 with 8-10ps and lager buffer.
