Thanks Steve for the comments which are in line with my thinking. I am so keen on the thought of the D400 and I think my thinking is this. I had a D300 and loved its tactile nature and pro build as I do now with my D700. My D7000 overall has been a disappointment in many ways. To me it doesn't feel great, lacks so many facets of the D300/s (except U1/2 settings which is a birders dream)and I do have trouble with repeatability on quality. I know that so much I capture on my D700, as used to be with my D300 will be useable if I so choose.

The biggest problem I have is I principally concentrate on landscape and wildlife. The D800 interests me only if I can be confident that DX mode in IQ terms is equal to or better than my D7000! I suppose then I could even go down to one camera for both my genres.

I honestly believe now that things sensor wise are changing for ever and eventually the major selling point will be the flexibilty of DX and FX with useable DX file sizes. This way they placate both the DX camera users with existing DX lenses and allow those with FX lenses to have the extra x1.5 reach. Perhaps this is the first shift in that direction with the coming of the D600 FX.

Really I hope for a D400 leaving me with two distinct bodies for each of my favoured genres. I'm in no hurry as I have both a D7000 and D700, so I can afford to read all the posts and take my time in what for me is a major decision.
