Re: Rumored D800s

exactly. clearly, the sensor doesn't define the D700 replacement.

This is semantics , apologies if my meaning was not clear.

it's an important clarification; you were arguing that the sensor was important, and the other stuff was "gravy". clearly that other stuff is important too. i would actually argue that it's more important than the sensor. a hypothetical D800s in sRaw, a D610, or a Df/D4 sensor would all be fine; it's the body, AF, buffer, and speed that count.

do you disagree? because you can have the D4 sensor for $3000. the Df is a perfectly serviceable camera; it just lacks the body, AF, buffer, and speed.

I thought it was taken for granted that a D700 replacement would be a modern camera , not a retro pastiche.

with the way nikon's going lately, don't take anything for granted. i don't know what they've been smoking.
