    not entirely unexpected consolidation of the camera lines actually... same thing is happening on the Canon side as well: a "pro" model with vertical grip, medium pixel count, and high shooting performance (1DIV, upcoming 1DX), and a "pro-thusiast" high pixel count model (5DII, upcoming 5DIII), while their "pro-studio" line seems to have stopped with the 1DsIII (no 1DsIV)... so for Nikon, the upcoming D4 and D800... less models, greater economies of production...

    so for people who need fast, ultra long batter-life, and super-solid build, they have the "pro" model, and for people who just need the pixels, the "pro-thusiast"... the so-called "pro-studio" users don't necessarily need the ultra long batter-life and super-solid build of a "pro" body so they are rolled into the "pro-thusiast" line...

    36MP RAW is 76.5MByte.

    If at 11fps, it will require a write speed of 76.5 x 11 = 841.5MByte/sec.

    The super duper new XQD card has a maximum write speed of 128MByte/sec. CF cards typically do 20MByte/sec writes max.

    The buffer will need to be very very BIG then!

    That would explain it. Everything is a compromise. Its how it is all balanced out. Thanks!
