Nikon D800 Rumors update the color black

The Nikon D700 has a full-frame 12 million pixel sensor and there are rumours that its replacement will have three times as many pixels. Nikon uses a 24Mp sensor in its flagship SLR, the full-frame D3X. When Nikon introduced the D700 it couldn't shoehorn in a 100% viewfinder AND a sensor cleaning system.

Autofocus and speed.
Nikon introduced a hybrid AF system for its Nikon 1 cameras. The 51-point phase detection AF system in Nikon's D3S is widely beleived to be second to none, but we'll be looking for some enhancements for the D800. We'd also like Nikon to take a leaf out of Canon's recipebook for the EOS-1DX and make the AF system menu options clearer, so users are able to get the best from their camera.
In order to acheive high continuous shooting rates and sensitvity levels the D800 will need to high-speed processor.

We have complaints about the D700's metering system, but Nikon has subsequently produced a more sophistacated system that uses a dedicated 2,016 pixel sensor so we'd like this to appear in the D800.
Specification wish list
24- or 36- million pixel sensor
EXPEED 3 image processing engine
Full HD (1080p) video
Full-time AF in video mode
2,016 RGB metering sensor
Sensitivity expandable to ISO 102, 400
Wireless flash control
Grab the salt shaker folks -- if Nikon Rumors is to be believed, what you're gazing at is Nikon's hotly rumored D800 DSLR.
CF+SD memory card slots
Slightly larger display
Excellent video quality, better than D3s
Video modes: 1080p/30/25/24 and 720p/60/30/25/24
AF identical to D3/D700
