Scott, I too would like better ISO and a larger buffer for nature photography. I am waiting on the D400 specs before deciding which route to take.
I have the D7000 with the Sigma 50-500. In good light they are a killer duo. In low, early morning or misty light, I have to push the ISO to 1600. At 1600 the cropped birds are often too noisy for my tastes.
