Re: Some other thoughts

Could be good if you siwtch to 16mp DX crop mode where Fps may increase and iso quality to be similiar to the D7000.

FF 4ps could be ok for Landscape and Studio Use.

Hopefully Nikon could offer some Sraw1, Sraw2 allowing the photographer to pick the raw size, eg., 36mp, 24mp, 16mp, etc increasing the FPS as image size goes smaller.

I would think there would not always be a need to take each image at full 36mp size - imagine the raw size and the need to home technique and to use pro/good glass at it.

One bonus with r'moured camera is that you are getting the D7000 included for free (DX 16mp mode).

Hope the glass coming out at same time is on my list:-

  • Nikon 300 F4 AFS VR

  • Nikon 70-200 F4 AFS VR

  • Nikon 80-400 AFS VR 4.5 - 5.6

Probably wait till prices come down on the D800 and sell my D7000 + 1x D300s to fund the purchase next year.
