There are several threads about this already. Fact of the matter is the buyer base is larger with video. Thus Nikon would have to charge more for a camera without video simply by rules of supply and demand.

Would you be willing to pay a $500 price premium for a model without video? If you doubt this logic, ask yourself why the D800E costs more...
