Will there be a D700 successor? No.

Well, in my book D700 may remain its own successor for the foreseeable future. Unless you need lots of pixels and extreme DR for low ISO landscape shooting, D700 still does it all. Still the most versatile of cameras, that you have to pay multiples of the current used prices to get ever so slight improvement over.

It's a discussion for another forum really, but Thom actually called the D800 the D700 successor and told Nikon users to "get over it," so I see a bit of a contradiction from Thom about this in his latest article.

What I find interesting is that all of the discussion above on the 16MP vs 12MP, focuses purely on 'resolution / print sizing' to wit, basically image detail per se, but ignores holistic rendition, which the newer sensors, much greater pixel density, trump the lower MP sensors, in color depth and tonality.

I strongly disagree. From what I have seen, D7100 renders colors somewhat better than any of D7000, D600, D800, D4 or Df, while D7000, D600, D800, D4 and Df are all very similar, and I like color rendering of any of D200, D300, or D700 better. You could say that you can do anything in PP, but some cameras are just better for color right off the bat. We're also talking matters of taste here, so we may not see it the same way.

When I started looking more closely at K-3 images ( and some not needing close viewing to see it) , it was very clear.

I have not looked at Pentax. The issue of F-mount is too overwhelming for me to look beyond Nikon.

And I do believe the science supports this, in that the greater number of pixels are simply able to capture not only more detail, but more tonal variations (light).

But as you say, horses for courses.
