Hi Nikonians!

I have just, a little sadly, listed my D700 on ebay with expectations of replacing it with a D800 but I have a couple of questions first:

I will be using the new camera for its video capabilities. I've cut my Video teeth a little with my D5100 (horrible to use but capable of some nice results!) And through assisting on a couple of indie feature films.

I am hoping to produce some short films and even a couple of features. If I am assisted by another camerman, will it upset the apple-cart In post if his B-Cam Is (say) a 5D mkII-III or even a Nikon other than the D800. Will the footage from these different DSLRs play nicely together?

On another note...!
I was really hoping that the D600 would be THE video shooting DSLR of choice. But it seems as though its been given the D5100s disabled manual exposure Controls!!
Is there any likelyhood of a firmware update, official or otherwise, which would take the stupid semi-automatic leg calipers off it and let it run free with the D800 and the Canon's?!

Thanks guys.
