Did Thom say this?

Should the DF have been a D4 sensor in a D 800 body? With 8 ish FPS and D800 price?

"So I'd say that the first thing Nikon got wrong is not making the Df truly a D700 followup. The Df should have been 8 fps, 51-point AF sensor, 10-pin connector, and 1/250 flash sync. We can quibble about removal of the flash and video."

Besides, Thom is stuck in the mid-'00s thinking that a Pro line-up consisting of versions such as a D4, D4s, D4x & D4h can segment the professional market and still be profitable for Nikon (or any camera company - if it were profitable, they would be doing it.)

Professionals on both sides of the aisle said good riddance to $4000+ cameras (Thom included I betcha) when they opted for the 5D mkII and D700, neither particularly pro-grade, over higher-priced alternatives.
