You will have to. An announcement is not the same as availability at your local store. That may take at least several months

I would think so myself, and I don't think it will be superior to the D200.
I am just beginning to explore the D200 further, and it is a truly wonderful camera. And this is where I finally disagree with Ken Rockwell. With a legendary lens on the D200, it leaves the D70S (with the same lens) far behind.
With the fantastic 17-35mm f2.8 hooked up, I can just get lost in taking photos until the darn D200 quick-drain battery rans out in quick time. This lens is just so good for my general use it makes me lazy to bring out the higher range or bigger ones like the likewise great 70-200 VR.

This upcoming "D80" (or whatever it turns out to be) is being discussed at length in our D70 Forum.
Here is the original thread, which has just been closed because it got unmanageably long,
and here is the follow-on thread.
