Disagree. Sport and news would LOVE to have 36MP. But it's impossible at the moment and they have to do without. When a 36MP camera turns up one day (within a few years) that can do 10fps and 50K ISO, every sports and news photographer will buy it. Of course.
The D4 has 3 specific advantages:
Fantastic build quality and sealing.
For pros with specific needs these are critical factors.
