Ok, so going from the other poll, no-one expects Nikon to release a 16MP FX 'D800' bodied camera this years Photokina (the D700 upgrade for the best term). But would you buy one if it existed.

There would be a million different possible specifications that would be deal breakers including price, I know, so just keeping this simple.

Video
6+ frames/sec
16MP FX
1/8000th sec (yes, talking to you Df )
D4s AF
~starting RRP $3000 odd

Feel free to add your comments or specs

I would rather see the specs you listed with the 24MP D600 sensor, then I would be on board.

In fact the specs you listed only with 24MP are exactly what I have been posting as my wish list for a long time now haha

6+ FPS / 8 with grip
24MP Sensor from D600
D800 body, features, etc.
D4S Af.

Sell for $2999 and own the market.

Then we would truly have a "do it all" camera to satisfy the majority of FF shooters, which is likely why Nikon hasn't made this. It would cannibalize D4S sales in the same way the D700 cannibalized D3 sales.

I'd still find 24 to be more than I want...

don't get me wrong, I'd rather have 24 than 36, but when it comes down to it, I've been happy with my D700's with no need for any more resolution. 16 would be my ideal sensor, and I would take the low light performance of the D4/Df over the 24mpix of the D600 any day.

I think the responses so far show why threads like this never work....... there is no consistent "what I want".......

When the rumours of a 24MPX D4s were floating around I was on board with that..... I would have paid the $7k for it in a heart beat.

Fair enough, however the difference in DF and D600 ISO is barely 1/3 stop. So, you aren't sacrificing much for those extra pixels at the end of the day. I like to crop and print big though, so it will be D810 for me

Nope, I'll wait for the new 20MP Nikon (non-Sony) sensor

This is the main thing, I think- while Canon doesn't own base-ISO shooting, their high-ISO performance is up there with the best, which is one thing that makes the D4(S)/Df unique among Nikon's lineup, as they still use the 'tuned for high-ISO' sensors. By putting one of these sensors into a top-end semi-pro body, i.e. the D800 body, and pushing the FPS up with solid tracking AF, they'd have a winner for those that don't need to work consistently in the elements or need a modern backup for their pro systems.

D4s sensor and AF in a D800 body.
6/7 fps
Shave some weight of it.
Price would not be the biggest issue.
Still not interested in video.

I voted no - only because I have a Df -- to me that does what I need it to do! And then the D800 is my everything else.

Well, the polling booths aren't closed just yet but I think we have a pretty decent indication how Nikon is feeling. Makes it pretty hard for the manufacturers to workout what's going to be the best for the business.

The results may be slightly skewed but either way, for all the reasons above and more, it's certainly not a resounding 'possibly'.

I'd want the specs to be the same or better as with the d700, which means capable of 8fps minimum.

16mp is fine. The jump in ISO performance is the key, especially without losing FPS.

That seems to be the problem with the high res bodies, including DX. Why does every camera have to be 24mp? The end result seems to be small buffer, low FPS, which is fine for landscapes and portraits, but some of us want to shoot stuff that requires better performance in terms of speed, buffer and ISO.

I'd still like to see a high speed d400 with a tweaked 16mp d7k sensor, to partner with this d700 replacement. I already have a d800 to use on the stuff that doesn't require high performance.

Personally I wouldn't buy one no. I like my d800 a lot and does what I need out of a camera. Maybe nikon will get the a7s sensor and do something with it. That would be pretty awesome.

Probably not. I have the D800 and the Df. Love both of these bodies. Use them for different applications. I don't care for video. Have never used it on the D800.

Yes Yes Yes lol I would buy it. Not thinking it's going to happen so I have my sites on getting the df down the road.

I own a D700 now, love it.

kind of... but it's not a replacement... it's a great companion camera... but I want something that has the performance of say, the D4... in a smaller body.... ie. What the D700 was to the D3.

all things considered though... my next camera purchase will be film...

I've got about 80 rolls of neopan in the freezer, and when I get my next pay cheque I am buying another 100 rolls... hopefully that should last me a while...

and the d700 was the 'companion' camera to the d3 i think. the next companion camera i think we'll see is when we see a D5. perhaps in the form of a mirrorless? who knows? but so far the trend we've seen is that this camera will inheret that sensor as it did with the d3 and the Df of the D4. there will be no "upgrade" to the d700. these cameras were the supplementary cameras to the pro bodies. you guys are turning blue.

I have no interest in 16MP. 24MP in a fine D8xx body would interest me.
