The split is becoming more and more even. What is perhaps somewhat interesting is that the two most popular options (though only just) are a direct upgrade of the D700 (low MP, no video) and the all singing all dancing 5Dmk3 competitor with 36MP and video.

Since car makers make many differentiated versions of a single car with different motors and other options, I wonder how much mileage there is for camera makers to do the same.

Whereas I doubt Nikon will make a camera without video as no-one appears to even consider it these days, I think there is plenty of evidence that both low and high resolution versions of the D800 would find a market.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha.
Evidence is just what it isn't.

Bob, you've lost it completely. I didn't say this survey was "plenty of evidence" as its pretty obvious from the heated debates and popularity of the D700. This survey just illustrates it. Now go and line up all your pencils again.
