Ok... Thanks for the clarification..

Don'e need 10. Would like 8. My D3s is plenty fast enough for me.

Great, slow that down to 8-10 and give me 24MP.

I've shot the D4. And frankly, the D4 won't do what I need. The Canon 7D is an 8fps, 18MP camera selling for $1500. It was introduced THREE YEARS AGO last month. It's moving at the same bandwidth as the D800...144mp/sec.

In order for me to get where I need to go, I need to deliver a 10-12MP final image from a DX crop, and I need to do that at 8fps. The D600 is getting me closer than anything else. If Nikon made a true 7D equivalent with the noise performance of the D600, I'd be golden.

Is that right? Well my D800 has certainly been meeting my needs for sports shooting. It's all but displaced my D3s. And I have a feeling the D600 will finish the job once I can get a grip on it.

I'm hoping that the 7DMk2 and the D400 will be direct competitors. And sadly, both are late for me. I needed them this fall to shoot field sports. If they don't ship in the next couple of months, I won't be in the market again until next summer.
