"RE: D700s"

There was a last shipment of parts needed to assemble the last of the D700's that was delayed due to the tsunami. Nikon decided to use them rather than scrap the inventory when they finally arrived during the pre-release shift of production tooling and assembly line to built D800's. Nikon announced that the D700 was staying in the line for the time being to prevent freezing the market for them. The choice scrap the parts and use the assembly line for D800's which was of unknown demand at the time, or use a valuable asset, one assembly line, to build a all but discontinued camera. Now that the D800 has been announced and is getting superstar status before it even gets into the hands of many photographers there are some in upper management who are probably sweating their decision. Being able to double production of the D800 now, when orders are in hand, to build cameras that will have to be steeply discounted and not sell very fast. Here, even in mall camera shops, dozens of them, D700's sit in display cases unsold. The only camera impossible to find here is the D7000 and the new models, D800/(e) and D4.
