Af-on missing, AE button placed far away, 1/8000 shutter speed lacking, Square eye-cup, metering mode dial. All what I am (very) used to on my D700.
For about 2k I will miss all that and gain:
Pixels - want that, print bigger all the time, sometimes need to crop/zoomBetter AF - tracking kids and sports, would help as is face-detection that worksWifi - sometimes I need to post or upload right away, would be very convenientVideo - a few movies of the kids in the future might be niceDual card slots - just to feel save?
That is a lot of money for extras that have work arounds (except the pixels) and I would get annoyed missing my interface features/shutter speed.I guess I'll wait another year, maybe they even add in GPS that works...
D8XX series - too expensive, too big files. Sweet spot would be 20Mp, but 24Mp is a good cap.
It looks like Nikon will never make the 'mistake' again of a D700 'package', I need to save up for a 42MP D900 and use it at a lower pixel settings.
Is the unscharp fix in it? http://edudemic.com/2011/10/adobe-photoshop-unblur/
Mr Fartleberry: Inexcusable;e not having integrated GPS in this class of camera.
Agree, compass, altitude and GPS should be mandatory in this day and age for a flagship camera.And the counter argument can be turned off with a switch...Even temperature could be an option.
