Only disappointed the Df is not a valid D700 replacement due to the preponderance of the consumer grade components.

The "D700 replacement" camera you want would have been even more surprising - they would have had to charge at least as much as a D800, it would probably need the same assembly line as they are using for the D800, and it would have taken some sales away from both the D800 and D610. So, although it would have satisfied a group of users, the net gain for Nikon at this time may not have been very much.

Perhaps they will stick with "only 36mp", or thereabouts, for the D900  while increasing the frame rate and buffer and improving the ISO a notch. By that time 36mp may seem like a moderate number of megapixels ~ and  the Expeed 4 should provide faster processing speeds. High speed memory for the buffer should also be cheaper by then.
