    I’m a tad disappointed that Nikon opted to boost the MP count rather than the ISO sensitivity :/ Oh well, at least the D800 makes the D700 a much more compelling choice if you’re not interested in video.

      that’s why they have D4, the more expensive sports DSLR with more ISO (less mpx). You can’t have the best of both worlds… for now

      @nls
      yeah, it’s either pucker up with the monster megapixel rate, get a D700 or wait for the rumored D400 :/
