Seems that Nikon has gone ahead and lifted the world-wide embargo.
PS: the latest "rumour" images turned out to be REAL.

Here is DPreview's article by Phil Askey:
The specs sound impressive - built in speedlight can do i-TTL, upto 1/500 sec flash sync (did I read that correctly?), 3FPS upto 144 JPEGs shot continuously, ... the list goes on.
This might just make the perfect "backup" body for me. Wait and see.
Any idea on availability? I couldn't find it (not to say that it is not there!).
