8 FPS and the D800 body with D4 sensor and that would END D4 sales.

What are people THINKING with posts like this? Obviously you're mostly thinking like a consumer and not a camera company.

For my needs the Df presents a good value.


It may well also get them many other new sales. Apple have never been scared of canabalising their own products, as long as you are buying a apple products, and that has never done them any harm.

Apple absolutely does protect their high end gear EXACTLY like Canon and Nikon.  You can't even get a MacBook with a dedicated graphics card until you are at near the top-of-the-line Macbook Pro.

People buy the d4 also for the grip, and build.

Most Nikon cameras offer battery/portrait grips.  It's the fast FPS and processing that separates the D4 from bodies below it.  A D800 style body with fast burst mode would absolutely cannibalize D4 sales exactly like the D700 did with the D3.
