Me too. Hate to lose money due to my exuberance!

I have to wonder as to whether it is related to some more updated releases. I am thinking about an update to the D7000, as well as a long awaited D400.I'd like to have upgraded to a D800 (in spite of the fact that I am enjoying my D600!)- the fps/FX bothers me. Would the inclusion of an XQD card have increased the fps at all? The D4, while it looks to be an exemplary tool utilizes the XQD card and is the only camera thus far to do so. Nikon needs to address these issues.
