You're right - most don't 'need' a new camera. I would 'like' a new camera that offers higher resolution and improved noise performance - without downgrading the other aspects of my D300.

Nikon seems unwilling to produce such a camera and I'm getting somewhat frustrated at the 2 steps forward, 1 step back approach being used by Nikon with their recent model releases. Of course this means that I havent spent any money with Nikon for some time. Maybe this situation is being reflected in their recent financials?

I would think there is zero R&D spend required to put the D600 sensor in the D800 body and produce a camera with D300 handling & performance with improved resolution and noise. That might attract quite a few 5D3 customers too - isn't that what Nikon's goal is these days?
