Hey Dez... I too am waiting for a 300S replacement. For me the D610 is not it

But I shoot mostly with a D700; I can't use the DX mode because it's too small in the viewfinder which doesn't give you 100% view anyway. With the discretionary grip , the fps is fine

That said, if the new cam is FX (with DX) and has a evf that can blow up to the DX size, I can live with that.

Shooting sports - I want the in cam crop and I crop that too. From 16mp to 12mp DX is OK

If it has a silent electronic shutter that's great. You can shoot ballet without bothering people

Mag body would be good to hold long fast glass.

I'm looking forward to more info.


16MP in FF is more like 7MP in DX. And the new camera is looking more like a slow model, at most 5.5 fps is the rumor (unless there's a grip coming too). It's not the D700 with 16MP, not at all.
