I am getting one anyway but my expectations were raised by other cameras

1. fps will be very useful for shooting sport and animals. I have to see the AF system. Nikon has made tremendous effort in improving their AF system one camera after the other. If there is NO professional fast shooter for sport and wildlife camera, A700 will be the one.

2. Live view: will be nice if shooting under water for me. Have just started my new world exploring the possibility of doing some diving. All other accessories are extremely expensive including underwater housing, strobes, flash, etc etc.

3. Sorry for having missed this point. I understand that both are available in 40D and D300. This is not a crucial point. We had one experience of getting a bug in the viewfinder of D200.

4. CF remained expensive, at point of 8Gb or above. I thought SD and MS duo offer better read/write speed as well. Adapters tend to compromise performance as well.

Other nice feature I love to have is

1. HDMI output
2. GPS integration
3. Better flash system
4. Much improved AF speed and accuracy
5. Upgrade roadmap including cameras and glass

Kinda disappointed.......after comparing
1. fps

Do you need more than 5fps?

2. live view feature

Is this crucial?

3.weather proof feature

It has sealing.

4. storage options.........I want SD slot and I want MS duo slots

It has a MS Duo slot. Get an SD-CF converter if you must.

etc etc

I assume you're trying to be funny.
