HEY . . . don't be dissing us peons.

Anyway, the D700 remains such a great camera, capable of consistently producing such stellar image quality, that smart thinking dictates skipping a D800 AFAIC. I'm personally done with D3-size camera bodies too, because no matter how avid I get about my photography, the notion of wandering cities and exploring them with my camera gear is no longer an attractive prospect with the weight of a Dx body.

The rumored camera bodies may be announced on January 6 - a number of Nikonians, pundits and photgraphy journalists have touted a Dx release first after all the disaster recovery in order to meet the pros needs for the upcoming Olympic Games in London - but I don't understand how Nikon could not announce two bodies and even come close to fully supplying the channels given the current state of Nikon's disaster recovery efforts, factory rebuilding/equipment supply efforts, parts supply & manufacturing re-starts and reintegration efforts and so on.

It's all happening, gradually, but adequately filling even the reduced demand in the channels (in light of the ongoing global retail downturn) remains a huge challenge for Nikon and many other companies. If Nikon pulls off anything better than that over the next couple of months, an enormous number of industry people will be seriously and mightily impressed for good reason.

Hopefully though, Friday will not come and go with the same silence as all the previous false alarms.
