Sheese; FF, 36MP, Nikon AF and "only" $3k. This is terribly tempting

The K-5 replacement will need to be 1) awesome and 2) cheaper that what the K-5 was on release othewise a second hand D700 will be cheaper.
My thoughts exactly.

Looks like interesting times ahead for Pentax.

Pixel density is the same as the K-5. I don't think there is anything insane about this, its a killer move if the ISO is as good as the D700.
Actually, that's a good point. I should double check my calculations some times

Programming the Auto ISO function into the first line of My Menu on the D700 makes it fairly easy to get access to.. I'm guessing you can do the same on the D300?
Sadly, no.

The My Menu didn't appear until the D300S.

As for the D800, what a camera!

But it is far more of a camera then anything I would ever need.

I'm wondering if Nikon has any plans to release a low MP FF camera, like the D700. Maybe at a lower price point?

The D700 is still my dream camera, now maybe the used market will open up?

If the earthquake hadn't happened I probably wouldn't have bought my K-5. My original intent was a D800 but I wasn't really interested in a D700 so I went elsewhere due to the delay. This new D800 just might entice me to sell off my Pentax gear unless Pentax announce an unexpected (and inspirational) camera soon. A D800, 24-70, 70-200 VRII, a fast 50 and 85 and a super-wide and is about all I'd ever need. As much as I have always loved Pentax (K2, MX, LX and now 2x K-5) I reckon I could live with that Nikon stuff.

Please, no "sell me you stuff and P**s off" messages etc.... ok?
