What should I Shut Up and do? D700, D810 or Hold My Breath?

Re: What should I Shut Up and do? D700, D810 or Hold My Breath?

I would either do two things:

1-Try a Df, in terms of file size and picture quality that is the logical replacement of the D700. It doesn't have the big grip and the AF speed of the D700 but the picture quality is definitely there and is lightweight.

2-Wait for a direct D700 replacement. I suspect (and hope) that Nikon would come up with a rugged mini D5 in the future that would share same sensor, same built and same camera size (minus the grip). Would make sense to make a D900 out of a D5.

I had a D700 that I sold to buy a D800 and that was a big mistake for what I do and I didn't like the colors nor the metering. I sold the D800 to get a Df because I didn't need AF speed for what I do with it. If Nikon comes out with a mini D5 I will definitely check it out.

Good luck
