LOL! You just articulated the VERY reasons why I stood on the fence on a D4, but jumped on the D800 the first day it was announced. There was just not enough in the D4 to make me want to jump. And the goofy card setup was enough to put me off for good.
There are some things in the D4 I would want badly. Every time I shoot volleyball (which is once or twice a week right now), I would LOVE to have that ability for the camera to remember my focus points separately for horizontal and vertical orientation. The wireless transfer to the ipad would be helpful to me in the studio as I use an ipad as a client confidence monitor in my small studio. The 16MP was such a letdown. Had it been 24, I'd have a D4 now. Even with the goofy card setup.
But I am waiting to see what they do with the D4s. Rumor seems to be the D400 will be a high frame rate, and 24MP DX camera. If so, I'll look HARD at that one. I've got a pair of D3s and a D800 for other work. A fast, daytime camera that will save me buying a 400/2.8 come next soccer season may be worth the expense. Otherwise, I'll be muddling through with the D800.
