    The only problem with this camera will be the AF. 9 Cross type points which will likely be clustered in the middle leaves alot to be desired. My subject is most often NOT in the center, Nikon. Why can’t Nikon move them around like the Canon 7D or 5DIII. This is a big issue for me with the D800 & D4 that make me want to get the Canons. I’d prefer to have 19 spread out all cross type points than 39 with just 9 cross type clustered in the center. I’m sure the sensor will produce some amazing pictures after the D800’s success and the 24mp is way more useful for the wedding/event photographer than 36.

    Why do they need to make it so small? Hopefully it will be a little bit bigger than the D7000.

    I am very excited about this Full Frame version! The great D700 was quite hefty for me, and when I read that the D800 is lighter, I was already relieved… Now I even jumped for joy!
    The better ADL of the D7000 generation is the one thing I look for in the D800, where the shadows are so much more open and highlights are so strongly retained. The second is of course, the low light AF capability… Other than that I trust I will enjoy the double MP size for more liberty in croppings… Being in an Asian country, crowds in dense areaas are a daily fact of life. The ability to spot a subject and trim it’s surroundings is like having an extra TELE lens…
    Can’t wait to get this little gem…!
