Although it is logical that Nikon comes out with a less expensive FX camera sooner or later, it is still a rumor. Until Nikon makes an official announcement . But a good one. I would love to finally have a decent view finder in a smaller body, like the F6. And when I need a bigger body, e.g. as a balance for the pro lenses or faster fps, I just install the battery pack.
Extra ordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
