A reader sent in the following tip concerning a survey request sent to registered Nikon D700 owners.
On 12/3/2009, I took an official survey from Nikon. The survey was very extensive covering technical and user refinements for the D700 FX.
The survey asked such questions on pixel count 15 mg or higher, iso (Broad ISO sensitivity low and high), 100% viewfinder coverage, possibly better auto focus and fps ranging from 5 and higher.

We hope you have been enjoying your Nikon camera! Your comments and opinions are important to us and we would appreciate you taking a moment to complete a digital camera usage survey which will help us develop future products. Click the button below to take the survey:
Thank you for your time. No personal identifiable information will be collected or used. It may take up to 15 minutes to complete this survey and the survey will only be available through December 11, 2009 (PST). The survey site is managed by our Japanese research firm so the URL will not be a “Nikon” web site.
It’s important to note that many manufacturers will use such surveys at various stages in the R&D process. And, since Nikon isn’t open about what is coming in the months ahead, we’re left with our own interpretation as to what such information actually means.
What we can glean from this survey, however, is assurance that Nikon is listening to photographers and asking very relevant questions to an informed user base, many of whom will be the target market for the next “upgrade” on whatever the Nikon D700 replacement turns out to be.
So, did anyone else take the survey, or have thoughts, insights as to what will/won’t become of the Nikon D700 replacement?
