Which is the cheapest body with a full frame sensor ? Does anything beat the D700 ?

Aren't the 36 Mega pixels a nuisance in RAW increasing processing time and clogging up hard drives ?
What are you using now and what's your choice for the future ?

David - the D700 seems to be discontinued. If you go by models actually in stock, the Canon 5D Mk II is the lowest I can find at $1900 body only. If I had to pick a horse, I'd probably say that Sony is really positioned well right now. They have a killer P&S, a mirrorless that works with their PDAF lenses and has a great EVF, plus APS-C and full frame body options. On top of that, they have Carl Zeiss optics. Nikon and Canon are making excellent cameras, but seem to be holding back to avoid killing their existing markets. Sony is taking chances. Plus they make great sensors and put them in many of the other brands.

Personally I use an Olympus OM-D E-M5, and I love it, but I can't say the micro four thirds will ever beat out the larger sensor cameras.

So much information--great job Brad!! Thanks.
I am shooting with the D800, thanks to my Dreamstime earnings. It is pretty incredible.
But you are right, David, 36 megapixels are a lot to handle.
I have a very old IMac, and will upgrade once the new one comes out.
Processing can be painfully slow, and I work a lot off of external drives.
Currently my primary camera is a Fuji XT-1.
