Hi Tom:

What you say makes a lot of sense and you make very valid points. Unfortunately, I do not have a crystal ball and can only speculate.

The way I see it is what is the advantage of having a DX camera if it is the same size and weight of an FX one? The 36 MP rumors makes a lot of sense to me, because you can have the best of two worlds with one camera. If you need high ISO or wide angle shots, use the D800 in FX mode. On the other hand, if you need the crop factor for a tele shot, just switch the camera to DX mode and 16 MP.

We’ll have to wait and see. Since I have no intention in upgrading either my D700 or D7K, this is all academic to me but lots of fun.

Best regards,

Hektor
