Pro DX with SSD and Cloud Capability for the future
With smartphone and mini tablet all getting better and better photo capability and mass photo app's installation, SSD (solid state drive) and cloud storage to speed up sharing will be coming to DSLR one day. My wish it would first show up with Pro DX because of its room for extra added weight. What do you think?

I think you will never see another "Pro" size Nikon DX body. At best you will get a D300 size DX body.
I also do not see that replaceable storage will go away, there are too many advantages and too many disadvantages to a permanent storage system. CF and SD cards are essentially SSD drives. Speeds are increasing.
Camera makers are still trying to figure out WiFi. Cloud storage is problematic from a computer. Why you would want to wrestle with that in a camera soon is beyond me. Maybe in a few more years when speed and reliability are 100%, otherwise the likelihood of losing images is too great.
Technology for the sake of technology may be clever, but it isn't always smart.

The technology Ia already here with smartphone. Soon most P&S will have that. May be DSLR follows.
I used D300 for a while and now it got put on shelves. If D400 or alike does show up, I will be interested in taking a look to see if complement my D800 to decide.
