Re: Simple.

1500 to 1800 for a used D700 with only 20k is a great price.

The D800 might be an upgrade from the D700 because of sensor in a full pro body, but it is overkill for event photographers who take 1000 photos a date and like to process Raw. 12mp Raw will process faster workflow over 36mp Raw.

The D600 has only a better sensor, the rest of the D600 camera is clearly inferior to the D700 classic camera (with its rugged pro body and superior AF system in D700). It should be worth more than a D600.

Put the superior AF system into the D610 and then maybe it would be worth more. OR build a D750 with pro body and top AF system and 24 MP. Unfortunately Nikon is not listening to those of us who want this D750. Or are they? Is something coming out by next year to solve slowing sales of Nikon or is it just the D610 to be announced soon.

Canon and Sony have decent full pro 22 to 24MP cameras in 5Dmark3 and Sony A99 with good performance. When will a full pro body D750 at 24mp appear? or is it never?
