As an amateur photographer stuck at Lightroom 6.14 on Mac I tried many alternatives to LR because I now take too few photos to pay for a subscription, and as I have an older MacBook Air from 2012, I was really impressed to see how fast X5 is, and also well thought... The editing and culling is a breeze, and function wise it is pretty good now, missing only perspective correction in the tools I use regularly-not a deal breaker. So no more subscription and even no need to buy a more powerful computer, thanks Exposure 5 :)

Tenstorms: Af-on missing, AE button placed far away, 1/8000 shutter speed lacking, Square eye-cup, metering mode dial. All what I am (very) used to on my D700.

For about 2k I will miss all that and gain:

Pixels - want that, print bigger all the time, sometimes need to crop/zoom
Better AF - tracking kids and sports, would help as is face-detection that works
Wifi - sometimes I need to post or upload right away, would be very convenient
Video - a few movies of the kids in the future might be nice
Dual card slots - just to feel save?

That is a lot of money for extras that have work arounds (except the pixels) and I would get annoyed missing my interface features/shutter speed.
I guess I'll wait another year, maybe they even add in GPS that works...

D8XX series - too expensive, too big files. Sweet spot would be 20Mp, but 24Mp is a good cap.

It looks like Nikon will never make the 'mistake' again of a D700 'package', I need to save up for a 42MP D900 and use it at a lower pixel settings.

You just need to go in the custom setting menu, f controls, f4 Assign AE-L/AF-L button!

Af-on can be set to the Ae-AL button or any other button quite conveniently, 1/8000th is a problem but you can now go to ISO 50 compared to 100 on the D700, square eyecup... well, who cares?, metering mode dial is now in the AF dial. Plus a bunch of welcome suprises like easy ISO, dramatically improved high ISO performance, I think you should reconsider your opinion and go to try the camera in a shop to see for yourself :)
