This is an outstanding camera. This is what D700 owners were hoping for in the D800 -- simply more of the same (ultra versatile, high quality, fast and bulletproof camera more than capable in a variety of contexts). This new 5D will be at home in the hands of a wedding & fashion shooter and in the hands of a photojournalist as well.

The only area where I think this camera underachieved just a bit is in the sports context where maybe 8+ frames per second would be more appreciated. But the Nikon D800 wouldnt have a prayer in this context, this is where the D700 still shines. Sure, the pro sports guys will have D1x and D4 cameras, but the less well heeled sports guy would have to sport one of these OR a sweet Canon 7D or the coming Nikon D400.

My Nikon Cool Pix 100 can do 15-30 frames per second (13+ feet per second) in sport mode.
That works.
