Get the  D700 replacement option, the D800

Wring.  Even Nikon say the D800 is not a replacement option.  In any case I have a D800 and I still want a D700 replacement.  That's $3000 not going to Nikon.

Ticks all your stated boxes.

No it doesn't.  My stated boxes are what I want to see in a faster body with 24 mpx or less.

Or get yourself that 5D.

I did.  Got a 5D3 and a load of glass - all money that Nikon missed out on.

What is it that the D800 doesn't do that the D700 replacement would need to do to be a D700 replacement in your eyes?

Smaller files.

Faster burst rate.

What features does the D800 lack which would make it less suitable as an all round workhorse than the D700?

Smaller files.

Faster burst rate.

Does the fact the meter and AF is improved higer DR, and high ISO performance

I love the D800, it just doesn't suit all my requirements for certain jobs


Yes, the forums are full of Nikon shooters switching systems.

According to this http://www.nikon.com/about/ir/ir_library/result/pdf/2013/13_f_d_e.pdf Nikon just sold 2.7 million intercahngeable lens cameras and 3.93 million lenses this year up until May.

So what?  Most of those are entry level systems that were recently introduced.

Well according to the stats it did end up in Nikon's hands

For one off buyers buying entry level systems who won't buy again.
