A true meaningful successor to the D700 would require the D4s innards in the small body option, ditto a D300s update scaled to DX.

The D800 already has the D4 innards. Just the high MP sensor that the EXPEED can't clear the data off so fast. The D800 shutter, mirror and AF work fine at 6FPS and very likely faster than that (since they appear to use the same components as the D4)

The D4s sensor is what would define a D700 replacement, the rest is gravy.

Think that option went with the Df - Nikon decided to do it a different way.

The Df is a not a D700 replacement for so many well documented reasons.

IMHO it is yet another cynical Nikon marketing/bean counter department raid on the Nikon parts bin, only this time with added with knobs on. A blatant, but vacuous and thus failed, attempt to keep the older guys happy.

It stumbles trying to meet its stated design criteria. , The budget wasted on the disingenuous ad campaign could have been put to better use producing a worthy' real tool' Nikon, instead of an unsatisfactory mash up, a Frakenfreak dead end body. RANT OVER !!
