"RE: Time for D400 DX?"

Reiterating much of what has been mentioned... I've outgrown my D90's capabilities and was looking to the "D400" for:
- higher FPS for sports and wildlife
- better low light performance
- DX crop factor reach for wildlife
- preservation of investment in some good DX glass I already have
- use of DX lighter weight lenses for long photo hikes
- increased number of focus points
- improved dynamic range capture
- improved image quality
- etc....

Would I like a full frame body? Sure, and I see one in my future at some point. However, to make that work it means at least one or two new FX lenses.

My roadmap, as I see it is:

D90 -> D400 -> FX mid range lens such as 24-120 or 24-70 -> D600 or D800 -> FX wide lens

Updated post: clarifying my roadmap, I see the FX body serving a different purpose than the D400 and not as a replacement for a D400.
