D710 Specs - Something to bring my Nikon stocks back up
11 months ago

Here's my D710 (D700 Successor, ultimate workhorse, travel pro, sports pro camera) My theme is to do away with buttons.  Maybe there will be a second, L version that puts all the buttons back.

  • 1/10,000th to 60 seconds shutter speed
  • ISO 10-12,800++
  • infrared shutter release, plus normal screw-in shutter release options
  • D4 sensor, but E version like D800E, maybe even something better, but less that 18MP.
  • Top of the line AF (laser-guided or something!)
  • AF/AE/M button on the back, instead of by the lens where I sometimes bump it
  • AF points that actually go out to the edge of the frame
  • 35 well-placed and accurate AF points would be plenty
  • 100% viewfinder (it's OK to add size/weight up top, if you know what I'm sayin').
  • Manual only, no mode or exposure +/- buttons!
  • RAW only. No button for jpg, etc!
  • no video, no button for video!
  • No live view, no live view button
  • Weather sealing - enough for boat rides in the driving rain
  • 2 inch screen on back (who needs 3 inches?) All I really need to see is if the highlights are blinking.
  • Bonus points for making it smaller and lighter, but with a grip I can hold all day (unlike the DF).
  • Multiple color options, Maybe I want it in red, white and blue, or Seahawks team colors, whatever.
  • $3500, because it's an amazing work of art

I'd probably buy two, since its the last camera I would ever need.
