Just read this interesting article on the Nikon website explaining the rationale behind the design of the D800.

It appears it was not designed as a D700 replacement. One reason was as a Nikon entry statement into the world of medium format cameras.

Read this interview with members of the design team:

I got this post from the Nikon Rumors RSS feed.

I am still working on getting my wife to let me upgrade to FX from my D300s and I think this would be the camera to start with
