I agree with this. It makes no sense at all for Nikon to devote production capacity to a discounted camera that's been on the market for years, when pre-orders for the D800/e are by all accounts unprecedented.

Paul, regarding the flack you're catching for choosing D700 over D800, I generally agree with you that a 36MP camera is a specialized device for which most people won't have any need whatsoever. There has probably been more nonsense posted on this camera introduction than any other in history. That said, there are people who can and will make good use of 36MP, and this level of pixel density is not at all revolutionary.
