    ...36mp? Interesting... Canon and Nikon swapping roles in the MP war?

    Did the D700 have a pop up flash?

    He has claimed to see the EXIF data from a picture showing the 36MP. And yeah the D700 has a pop up flash.

    Will this kick Canon into producing a 5dmkiii/6d, I wonder?

    the picture looks so fake. the battery grip is out of focus, the whole things looks like its been shrunk down, the red strip doesnt look right, heaps of things are off about it

    Looks fake to me. Doubt the D700 would jump to 36mp when the D3x is 24. You'll immediately kill off any chance of selling anything above it.

    Canon 1D X is 18mp..

    5D2 is 24...

    I'd still buy the 1D X over the 5D2 if I had the coin.

    Doesn't the D700 have the same AF as the D3 though? A little different than the 5d2.

    Good point, as my decision is AF based (and hence why I have a 7D over a 5DII). The D700/800 sure make jumping ship a huge temptation, but I just have way too much invested in lenses.

    Anyway, I still think Nikon are killing it in terms of bodies in this segment at the moment.

    Keeping in mind that the D3X is almost 3 years old now (very early 2009). I think that the 36mp will be the base for the D4 (same as they did with D700/D3 back in early 2008) with D4x being released in 18 months or so, with who knows what for MP.

    And besides its far from just MP count requirement for better IQ.

    If the %100 viewfinder is true (and it probably is) I'll be more tempted than I first thought but still not until the price drops a fair bit.

    I dunno about those bodies, could be or may not be real...
    Looks similar to the D7000 shape wise.

    I am waiting for the D4 to come out, so I can get a cheaper D3s. Could do with the high ISO, which I am not so sure the D800 will have unfortunately.
