This question has been nagging at me so I thought I'd have Nikonians weigh in.

The jump from the D700 with 12+ mgp to the D800 with 35+ mgp is a signifant change, venturing into medium format territory and possibly beyond Kodachrome 25 territory. Any ideas as to Nikon's reason for this? Which could be anything. (I thought the model following the D700 would be more like 24 mgp or so.)

A comment by a local camera store suggested if the cost of a new D700 is what's stopping me or anyone to buy a used "low-mileage" D700 traded in for a D800 and to then send it to Nikon for a complete overhaul.
