... I love it. will I buy it? it all depends on the size, sensor and price once again ) ...
If this is meant to be a halo product, who knows if it was worth doing? Maybe it is. If this is meant to sell lots, at that price point it fails miserably. If I was trying to choose between this and the D800, there's a small chance I choose this because I want the D4 sensor and 16MP is all I need. But if I did choose this over the D800, I'd be very much in the minority. Aside from the sensor and 1 additional fps, D800 is "better everything", and let's face it: the D800 sensor isn't a slouch, and if 4.5 fps doesn't work for you then 5.5 fps is not the magic bullet.
I'm not trying to be an arse here...I'm halfway nervous about even asking this, but please take it with the best of intentions. I'm not trying to troll:If you're using this in very low light, aren't the dials going to be more of a problem than a joy? Nobody likes over-reliance on menus (well, I sure don't), but might menus and two command dials at thumb/forefinger for aperture/shutter speed make more sense when we're half in the dark?
Nasim Mansurov just suggested a completely D610 spec at a nearly D610 price. I think that would have sold better.
