According to your profile, you're a DX user (D2X). FX is a BIG shift in both workflow and supporting equipment. The question should be: Do you *need* FX and are you *ready* for FX? The D300 already outdoes much of what the D2X delivered, so I would personally be waiting for the D400 before I made that much of a jump.

I think DX lenses indicate a DX user better than going by the camera. I have all FX lenses and a D200, but I never bought DX lenses due to my desire to eventually go to an FX digital camera. The D700 was the first one in my price range, but then I was unemployed. Now the D800 is in my price range and I am making the plunge. The original poster has FX lenses like me.
Shoot nature with respect and don't trample it or startle its inhabitants. :)

Both! Seriously, reading your profile, since you are Pro and shoot mainly Landscape I would see no need for a D4. I am not sure you need either
If your equipment profile is up-to-date then some glass new could be a consideration.
More information on why you feel you need one or the other would be helpful:)
Best of luck. You might want to post on the appropriate camera forums but since neither is really in any/many member's hands..... most will be looking at the specs. Tom
Edit: Armando types faster than I do I just had a look at October House. I only saw one action shot..the dog shaking itself.. so I stick with no D4. I can see where you might want better high iso for events, schools, weddings and you might want higher Res. and more MP if you want to print your landscapes really big. You might want to look at a D3/D700. If you really need a tax right-off ....
Hey Richard, These other gentleman who answered your post are more knowledgeable than myself, but I will take a different path here because I always figure the person altready has their mind made up. Go with the D700 or D3s save yourself some bucks, these cameras will blow your mind and then you will have some extra cash for good glass. Ray
...go with the D800, hold for the D4s (I'm sure they're already working on it as we speak...even though the D4 is just announced), I currently have a D3s, so I'll probably get the D800 when the furore dies down to complement it, then..
