I've been a huge fan of my D700. I'd like to retire my old D300 body before the year's end. The D800, however, doesn't really seem to be a replacement for the D700, far more megapixels than needed, slower frames per second. I'm guessing there's a grip that would add a bit of speed to the D800? The latest release, the D600, seems to be a an enthusiast camera rather than a workhorse like the D700. And so far, Adobe is not supporting D600 raw files anyway. That said, I'm a poor photographer (aren't we all?) and can't plunk down $6K for a D4 right now. I know old D3s cameras are good, but don't think any new ones are still out there to be had. I just wish Nikon would give us a true D700 replacement, not a retooled D7000(D600). Maybe I need to quit fretting and look at the D800. I don't shoot much sports, and when I do, the D700 is still going strong. No way I'm moving over to Canon, either, too much Nikon glass and gear accumulated to make that viable. Suggestions or thoughts?
