Viewfinder magnification?

Those of us who shoot long with DX are already using very expensive 35mm lenses. Our choice of DX has more to do with viewfinder magnification and frames per second than it does with the size of the sensor.

That doesn't make sense. The viewfinder is not affected by sensor size, it's optical, so DX/FX is irrelevant there. As for frames per second, also not a sensor size issue, it's a data issue. The D4 is up to 11 frames per second as a FF camera, but it's also substantially less data than the D800. There are trade-offs to be made there, at least today, but that will change.
