Between the D2x and the D3, Nikon made the decision to take the cameras from DX to FX. And while that decision really opened up the door in terms of noise performance, I find myself wishing that there was a current DX pro body camera.

So I'll put the question to those of you who have a D4, D3s, or D3. If there was an option to buy a DX sensor in a pro body, would you want it? Let's assume it was either an 18 or 24MP sensor with noise performance similar to the D3. Would you be willing to give up ultimate noise performance for DX?

I know in my case, as I sit ready for the D400, that I'd MUCH prefer if that sensor was going to be housed in something like a D3s/D4 body. I miss DX for soccer, track and field, and other sports where I could use some extra reach. For daytime sports, I rarely find myself shooting above ISO 400 anyway.

Thanks for your thoughts.
