I'd been thinking seriously of moving "up" from my old friend the D700 to the D800 (the D4, D3, etc, are too much camera for this amateur), but I've very lately become attracted to the about to be formally-announced Nikon Df for, among other things, and solely based on rumors, its size/weight and surface-mounted controls (I'm a former, long-time film Nikon user and still find menus awkward). One of the seemingly persistent rumors is that the Df will have a D4 or "D4-like 16Mp sensor. It seems as if the D4 sensor must have some special qualities and characteristics unlike and superior to the 36Mp D800 and 24Mp D600/D610 sensors. By the way, 16Mp is not in the least, off-putting, for me, so there is, for me, no issue about the sheer number of pixels.

So, in the event that the Df-D4 sensor rumors are true, what are those D4 special qualities and characteristics (if part of the Df specs) that I should weigh along with the other Df features (and price) which should be pretty clear and official by the end of today?
