D800 - interview with Nikon
I'm not sure if this has been posted before but here's an interview with Nikon's marketing manager Nobuaki Sasagaki re the D800/800E -http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/news/Nikon_D800E_Exclusive_CP_interview_news_311455.html?1
Also - note the interesting 2nd paragraph under the 'New DSLR on the way' section. Perhaps a D4x? Perhaps a D400? Perhaps something else?

>the D400 with 16MP
You're probably right - although it could be a D4x with 36MP or more. Instead of making vague statements I wish Nikon would at least say which range they're referring to - i.e. full-size body, FX, DX, etc.

I was made uncomfortable with my choice of the D800 by these comments.
Amateurs don't see as well as professionals and won't notice the improved details of the D800E?
Then he say's the eye will tell all.
Maybe its in the translation.

I think he may mean that 'amateurs' are less likely to view the 800E files so critically (i.e. at 100%) and therefore wouldn't notice the slight increase. In other words, the difference in detail between the 800 & 800E is there but you have to go looking for it.

I agree. He says that Nikon creates a different "BENEFIT" with each new camera. For D800 - resolution, for D4 - high ISO performance.
I guess next DSLR will be D400 and the "benefit" will be SPEED!
I even expect that this camera will beat D4 in order of speed performance.
