p.1 #1 · Nikon should....


Put the D600 sensor in a D700 body with ramped up processing power for faster fps and name it D700S. Price it at what the original D700 sold for and sell thousands of them...

....I bet.

I know I'd be in.

I would buy one. I love my D700. What would be even better is if they made one that took the same grip as the D700 with a tray replacement for a EN-EL15 battery.

I will buy two but that would kill D800 sales.

It's pretty late in the game, but I would still jump for a D700s with the D3s sensor.

IT would be even better if they would keep the D700 AF.

It's hard to please everyone. I like the D600's body as it's perfect for street and light weight shooting. There's the D800 for those who want a better build and AF, although it would have been perfect if it had more FPS.

Indeed a number of potential D800 buyers might opt for the D700s instead, but this would not hurt Nikon if both are priced at $3000. But I bet there would also be many D600 buyers who would spring for the D700s instead, so in the end it should be a net gain for Nikon.

I wish they continued the trend like the D3 and D700 had, practically same everything, just different shell. A D4 and D800 with the same sensor, then have a D4X with the 36mp D800 sensor.

But that would have meant an $8000 price-tag for those who do want 36MP.

I would be one of those who would prepay D700s or similar as soon as it gets announced. I do owe D700 since 2008, being stuck between D600 and D800 idea. I am intrigued by their sensors, IQ, DR, and so on..., but there is something missing on both models making me to wait longer until "some magic happens" from Nikon, sticking to my trusty D700 for now.

What you're describing would be a D600S (for speed). It wouldn't fit into their line, as the D700 originally sold at $3,000.

The D600 is US $2000.
The D800 is US $3000.
The D800E is US$3300.
The D4 is US $6000.

People already struggle a lot between the D600 and D800. They would have to get the price to $2,500, and slip it into the line as an upgraded D600, between the D600 and D800.

A true D700s would have the same sensor as the D3s, use the same D800 form factor, batteries, grip, etc. yet have the internals of the D3s. That would probably hit at $3500.

It'd probably be the D800X or something like that. I don't think Nikon would make a D700-S better than a D800, especially if they are naming the camera models by how they perform. It's like re-naming the Corvette 'ZR1'...just to a 'Corvette'

Shoulda woulda coulda. 12mp might be adequate for some. But it is inadequate for many in today's world.
D600 is a fine camera apart from terrible ergonomics. 24mp is the sweet spot for many photographers. Let's move along.

I can't help but wonder how much lower the D800 could have been priced were it physically identical to the D700 body, further amortizing tooling, machining, and assembly-related costs. Unfortunately, I suppose that would have been a marketing disaster.

That would be nice (I'd buy one for sure), but it could not cost the same as the D700 as that was the same as the D800 now. So $2500 would be a fair price.

Why is this? Are people making large prints and/or extreme crops? If I look at a photo on my 27" monitor I only have about 3 million pixels on screen. If I publish in a magazine they are going to use a 150 dpi screen and use only 1,500 pixels on the long edge of the image.

Not to argue, it's a real question. What are people using all those pixels for? In my case I know that 99% of the time I down size the image. However I do keep full size raw files in my Aperture library.

Most of all Nikon should revamp its customer service and service.

When a company has great products but also treats customers like gold and makes satisfaction simple, they keep coming back, spend more, and tell everyone they know

Nikon should..........

Include a two-button reset for USER settings in addition to factory settings. And/or a mode that does the reset automagically at power-up.

This should be applicable to all models.

Also, the D700 style batteries were phased out due to Japan outlawing lithium batteries with exposed contacts. If you're going to redesign a little bit of the body, why not a lot?
