Hi,

Assuming a super high-megapixel D4x is released around September (which I think is likely, although of course I'm guessing), what do you think will happen with D800 prices?

Will the prices of D800 go down, or are the cameras that different that they won't compete?

IMHO, I don't think there will be a D4x.

D4s, Yes!! And I hope it's CF Card Only and they abandon that silly XQD Format!!
I run three D4 Bodies and I hate the fact that I only have one card slot, yes, I do have XQD Cards, but I never use them in the field!! I can't deal with two different formats on the road.

XQD is one of the best feature of D4 - which makes D4 capable of sustaining high fps bursts.

I have fired 80 Frame Bursts on 300X CF without buffering!! And I don't need another Card or Reader on the road!!

Try doing that in uncompressed 14 bit raw!!

The XQD is faster tha CF and more importantly has more scope to increase that speed with development. this is of massive benefit to thoes that shoot fast bursts. Cf technology is currently a limiting factor and this will become increasingly apparent as framerates and pixels increase.
