Hi, so I can't handle it any more and I'm switching to Nikon. Forgive my ignorance, but I'm just not as up to date as everyone else on here would love some advice. Been reading through years of d800 rumors but don't have the same experience to know what is realistic with Nikon as I do with Canon, so I know my question is redundant.
First, do is there any info on how production is going to go in the next several months? I noticed the d700 bodies are now costlier than they have ever been. Any thoughts?
The other question is about rumors of a d800. I want a prosumer-size body, pro AF, pro build, weather sealing, and a really nice high ISO file in the 12 to 18 megapixel range. Honestly the d700 is the perfect camera, but obviously I'd like an even better version with even better IQ and high ISO performance should it be right around the corner. I shoot with 5d2 bodies and I don't use the big raw -- I just shoot in 10 MP small raw. Video would be nice but not a deciding factor. I also want to keep expenditures in the $2500 range for the bodies.
From what I am reading, the d800 is not the camera I am looking for. Expensive and huge files. Am I missing something?
I have about 6 months of quiet time in which I can switch, though I'd like to switch immediately to familiarize myself before my shooting season picks up again.
