Well Nikon can provide sraw along with higher fps with D800/E to meet your needs. I am not sure if they will. As far as its af is concerned it is top notch.
So instead of asking Nikon for another body, people can start demanding a 'paid' firmware upgrade to give higher fps n smaller images, even tho free will be better!
Which would you rather chose?


Nothing against you Devendra, it is more against the drift of the conversation ...

I would choose none of the above, none of those options are DX

Some cameras, some lenses, some computers

this is not restricted to FF only!

Using older v2 sensors, we can have 32-36mp DX's with 24mp SRAW/Binning or whatever you want to call it. Or just have 24mp. But, basically a slower 5-6fps at full DX, and faster at crop factor (32 down to 24), and/or faster with binned sraw. Just based on a few variables, there are quite a few options that can possible with the sensor and expeed XYZ but different software. Its a win win regardless of the format. I hope that we see this as a potential trend of cameras with software featured upgrades. It will make our cameras last longer while Nikon still being able to make money while focusing on pluggable/upgradable bodies until its time for us to overhaul our bodies again.

PS: and I was responding to jfriend, who has some valid needs which can be FF or DX or both.
