I just bought a D800, and you couldn't get my four old D700. It didn't stop being a great unit. I don't see the D600 or the D800 as a replacement.

Can you explain why the D800 isn't a D700 replacement please?

Specifically: what features does the D800 not have that it should have (or does have and it shouldn't)?

Why Nikon didn't just put that 24MP sensor in the D700 body is a mystery.

They put a 36MP sensor in a D700 body instead.

I don't like the D600 layout. I feel the same about the D7000,D7100...I do NOT see those as replacing the D300/D300s.....

I quite agree, but for me the D800 replaces the D700.  I don't have much call for 8fps, so I don't miss that.

Is there anything else the D800 lacks that stops it being a D700 replacement?
