It's an almost perfect full frame camera...I don't care that it isn't trendy anymore.
I mean,how amazing a D800 could be?
what isn't perfect about the d700?
D800 has better sensor and more megapixels (24 megapixels is the rumor). Although the mega pixels isn't all that important unless you need it for DTP/commercial agency/printshop minimum requirements.
I rather look at better dynamic range and colordepth noise performance etc which is almost certainly going to be better on the D800 then on the D700.
The D400 will be a D300 with a D7000 sensor basicly. D400 will be better then the D7000 on some details like continuous shooting buffer and fps speed.
You can compare the D400 to the D7000 as you can compare the D300 with the D90. D90 had almost d300 performance for half the price.
Its just things like fps and buffer speed that make the D90/D7000 not a professional camera and a D300/D400 is considered a professional camera.
how could you be comparing something that doesn't exist to a camera that puts money in people's pockets everyday.
