My dream! A light D4 36MP with FX/DX modes.

You forget something. Weight. A nature photographer, walking far from roads, using the equipment all day. Not a studio or sports photographer. D4 1,34kg + 800mm 5,4kg = 6,74 kg. Compared with D7000 0,78kg + 500mm 3,88 kg = 4,65kg. 2 kg extra weight on your shoulder for a whole day.... Try it! Here are lots of besserwissers who obviously are negative, not seeing the point! Maybe I am not good enough to explain my vision?

D4 too heavy, why so heavy? Lower resolution than it could have been.

My dream:

A lighter D4 (call it S modell or X whatever) with 10 fps or higher, 36 mp sensor with a 16 mp crop mode (not higher because of defraction problems)

Then I skip the D400 and the D7000!  And I can use my 500mm all day long in the field.
