D600 ? Though i returned my D600 given this stupid oil thing, I loved the small size, great image quality and quiet shutter. Focus/speed wasn't D700/d4 like but pretty good for 1600 bucks, of course I have a D4.

Given everythign you said, nowhere did you say you need crazy base ISO DR or resolution. D4 is it if you want video, BIC performance. That said hopefuly the latest firmware fixed my D4's tendency to just freeze up every once in awhile, still amazing when it didn't.

D600 too small for me, I'm not wanting to take any steps backwards if that makes sense. I need focus speed. Base ISO, nah not a concern.

I placed an order on 42nd street for the D4............

but I'm just having second thoughts. I'm pretty sure having 2 bodies would come in handy some day so I'm not in a rush to sell the D700. But I do see the opportunity of selling D700 and buying blimp for D4.

Looking at Aquatech sound blimps currently...

Also, looking into the sport housings for underwater. I'd rather buy this upfront if it does a decent job at blocking out sound. Anyone know?  http://www.aquatech.net/ny-4.php
