Thanks Ned. As noted by the title, I was just putting it out there. I had seen the Nikon Rumors post about the D4X but had seen a few other posts suggesting it may come out in May. Was just wondering if the sale price on the D3x could be attributed to a potential announcement a few months away but think you are probably right that the D800 specs may be the reason for the price drop. Still leaning toward the D4 but will take a bit to make up my mind.
