Nikon's D700 a balanced camera for image quality, value, pro handling and MP.

It is clear customers want a D700 replacement, and the D610, D800/E, and D4s are not it.

It comes down to what will Nikon do, if anything, to prevent inevitable customer loss because of this.

Frankly, I don't see why people are so against the D800 as the D700 replacement. If 36MP is just too much, move the image size down to 20MP.

The D800 has tremendous improvements over the D700.

- Grip is better.

- Viewfinder is 100%

- Live View is vastly improved

- At 36MP the image quality is far better (ability to crop in is huge)

- Dual card slots (I put all my JPG's on the SD and RAW on the CF - far easier to manage the workflow this way).

I don't miss my D700. Love my D800.

...sorry to burst your bubble, Nikon bashers.
