I had been following the rumors on the next Nikon DSLR for about a year. First it was the "D400". Then the rumors specualated that the new Nikon was going to be the "D10" based upon the vertical grip for the the D300 being a MB-D10. Never in my searches came across the "D700". Looks like Nikon got everyone!
Glad I kept all my regular lenses!

If having a different name than everyone expected is "getting everyone" than I guess you are right.
People expected a full frame DSLR that was smaller and less expensive than the D3 and they got it. I don't think the name matters much.

I sure didn't call it. I was thinking a compact FX would appear in a about a year and the D80 successor would be unveiled this summer. Hopefully I don't end up being wrong on both counts.
