As you'd expect, the camera's processing has received a considerable refresh, Westfall explains: 'You've got dual Digic 5+ processors, which our engineers are telling us are 17x faster than the Digic 4s used in the existing models.' In addition, the metering sensor, given its added complexity and the need to interpret its output to feed into the AF system, gets its own Digic 4 processor.

Another change to the 1D X's storage is the addition of an Ethernet 1000 Base-T network port. This allows faster transfer speeds and the use of longer cables (the limit is 100m, rather than around 3.5m for USB).
Price £ ?????

I just wish Nikon would hurry up and announce the D800 as I am desperate to upgrade but dont want to get a d700 if the 800 comes out a week later Grrrrrr.

Back on topic though this looks the dogs but does it do enough different to warrant the pricetag?

Current order price is £5299.00 for delivery in March.

I would suspect that a lot of us WANT one but how many of us actually NEED one?

Funny how want turns to need when I'm explaining to my better half the finer details of a new camera :D

I'll be watching for a 1DIV on the second user market like many others I expect. For some of my work the 1DX would be very nice but I manage quite well with what I have at the moment and I cannot see any compelling reason to put £5k+ on the table for the 'nice to haves'.

Note: If my better half is reading this I did not write the above paragraph. I will always want new camera and cannot explain how the above has my name attached to it.

The rumour-mill says that Nikon will make an announcement about the D800 on the 26th October with the camera being available in November.

If you want to hear what 14fps sounds like check out http://www.petapixel.com .

Petapixel is a cool feed anyway :)

I wouldn't hold your breathe..

My assistant used to work for Jessops and they were told by the Nikon rep in July that the D4 would be announced in August for November shipping.

The D4 *should* be announced before the D800.

I'm holding off a D3s until I hear about the D4
