Honestly, I think there are a LOT of buyers out there for what you are describing. The question is whether it's in Nikon's best interest to build it.

On the other hand, I expect D3s prices to drop to less than $4k in a year. That's still quite a stretch from $2700, but if you need that low light performance, then you do. Believe me, I was none to happy when I got awarded a sports contract to shoot on a field where I was coming up 3 stops short at ISO 6400. And the best low light camera I had was a D7000. The job dictated I buy a D3s, so I did.

I truly do hope Nikon come out with a D700s with that D3s sensor. I think that will answer the cries of a LOT of users for the next few years.
