    This might be my new camera when I make the change to full-frame. I'm craving more resolution than the current 12 MP, but not for 8K...hopefully this is more like the d700 pricing.

    I will buy Nikon D800 even if they maintain the resolution at 12 Megapixel as long as :

    - Nikon maintains their superb chroma noise suppression in D700, or --finger crossed-- D3s
    - keeps that fabulous color-based AF tracking system in D700
    - maintains that crisp shutter speed, 8fps max burst rate, very quick mirror blackout
    - maintains everything else that D700 has
    - adds in h264 1080p movie mode with continuous AF

    I would also add...

    100% viewfinder, and
    second card slot, if I had my druthers :)

    What's in a name, but that sounds like what they'd call a D700s -- maintain all the D700 qualities, add video. I'm thinking that also adding a 100% viewfinder as mentioned and priced at the same level as the D700, or reasonably close, it would sell very well. If it's going to be a D800, I'd expect more radical changes than the ones you mentioned, including a new, better AF module for the next generation.

    Forget pixel count. Give us even better high ISO performance.

    Already the K-5 and D-7000 have almost as good high ISO as the D700/D3. Not a surprise, given that the D700 is two years old. But that's besides the point. Imagine what can be done with the larger photosites of an FX 12Mpx sensor.

    More than the lowest noise at the highest ISO among the APS-C cameras I am excited about the extremely high dynamic range of the Pentax K-5. According to the DxO tests it has the highest dynamic range of all cameras tested, full frame, medium format, aps-c or 4/3 ...

    I'm saving up for this camera right now, and it doesn't even exist haha.

    The D7000 has essentially the same sensor. The K-5 has additional high-ISO noise reduction you can't disable, but otherwise they're close enough.
