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 know I'd be in.
I sort of agree with you on that one, Larry. I think that both the d800 and d600 are nice cameras, but I don't think that either of them are a true d700 replacement. I'd like to have a high speed, high performance camera, with excellent high ISO noise performance, like the d700 was in its day. It has a Ch of 8fps, with the right batteries in the grip, and that's what I'd like to see in a replacement body, aside from the d3s.
The problem is that I'm not sufficiently clear on the high ISO performance of the d600. DXOmark seems to indicate that it's a little better than the d800 and better than the d700, but not anywhere near the d3s level of high ISO performance. I'm rather a DXOidiot and have a lot of trouble figuring out what they really mean with their figures.
Given that the d4 is restricted to 16mp, I rather doubt that they can have awesome high ISO and a very fast frame rate, with 24mp. I also doubt that they'd want to plop that d4 sensor into a d800 body, like they did with the d3, or they'd have done it already.
