If it was that "simple", why have they kept a dedicated "AF-ON" for all the "pro" bodies?

There is a price to pay for a no-compromise body. Of course, the real "no-compromise" body is the D4 - "if" you are willing to go FX.
I am willing to pay that price to avoid migrating to FX. I paid top dollar for my intro to digital with the Coolpix 995, then more top dollars for the D200. I did not get a D300 but at intro it was the same price as the D200 at intro. So the price you quote is about what I expect.

I still want a D400. I temporarily squelched my NAS by getting ... a second D200
