Yeah... but the D800 in DX mode (if you are happy with cropped and light the reach) has 29 shots, or 38 if in 12 bit, which is quite a lot.

So if your concern is you want more than 4fps, I agree, something else.

If your concern is the length of time you can shoot at 4fps, there are options. Fast card, 12 bit, DX mode, you probably get a lot more than 38 as there is some buffer emptying as you write, but that's near 10 seconds. Pee-wee football rarely has a 10 second play does it?
