But seriously, it just shows the gap in Nikon's line-up. Like you I've been waiting for this mythical camera so for now I'm sticking with a D700 & D3s. For what I do (weddings) I still think they're Nikon's best all rounders. Although I'm seriously tempted by the 5D, apart from the Nikon badge it has exactly the spec I want. The wait goes on.

However, for his needs it falls short of his criteria regarding performance, compatibility, and cost:

does not get 8 fps

does not fit his Nikon 200-400 and 600mm lenses

is over 3000USD
