Well I'm waiting for the d400. If not to buy that, hopefully it will at least drive the price of d300's down.

I'm considering picking up a D7k to compare to my 50D and go from there, but I'm not sure.

EDIT: And by "picking up" I mean rent...

I've pre-ordered one and I'm pretty excited for it. I've never been a pixel peeper, but 36 MP for low iso work (studio and landscapes) is pretty appealing. Not to mention a 15 MP DX crop mode for birding and wildlife.

Even at high ISO, take the D7000 performance (as mentioned by CJ) and downsize it to 12 MP and I'm sure it'll more than compete with the D700.

Nikon needs to sell D4's, and they're not going to do that with a high ISO, high framerate D700 replacement.

Let us know how you like it. I'm really digging it, but can't justify that kind of expense at the moment.

The D4 is a better camera (16MB FF), especially if you don't need the resolution. Low light performace on it is WAAAAY better because the sensor elements are 4x as large. I shot a wedding yesterday for a friend, and even with f1.4 glass was kicking it up to ISO400. On the D4 you could bump it to 1600 or 3200 and STILL not see any issues with image clarity or grain.

The downside is the D4 is 2x as much as the D800.

IMO that's what Nikon had planned on though. Market the D800 for the people who don't need high FPS and all the other doodads on the D4. Too me the D4 is the working pro camera for sports and all the low light stuff, and the D800 is geared towards landscapes, studio, stock etc... The stuff where people care about making huge pictures or high resolution.

Either way Nikon has a solid lineup!

You can't really compare the D4 and the D800. Sure they both take photos and video and such but one will survive the harsh use at the hands of a photojournalist while the other may crap out (rain, travel, demos) Two different cameras for different needs. I've had my hands on both and they are nice. The D800 has a great feel and is well balanced while the D4 has been trimmed down somewhat and had some of the buttons and switches that snagged on stuff removed.
