"RE: D700 is here"

True, I missed those off my list. I used to have a 105 f/2.5 with my trusty F2 long ago, so I know exactly what you mean about DOF.

Since I've come to the conclusion I'm a DX person, and therefore in the bottom 95% of users, I'm far more interested in the next step forward for DX.

I predict that the D400 will cause quite an upset among the D700 buyers. With its superior dynamic range it will be able to take photos that are only possible today with a tripod and post processing on a PC. And high ISO handling on a par with the D700.

The D700 users will be saying - do I buy a D400 now or do I wait for the D800 with the equivalent capability? Or should I have both? More importantly they will ask: Should I have really gone to FX when the DX sensors are now shown to give such brilliant results. Why am I lugging around all this expensive and heavy kit anyway?
