I think the price is too high because I believe to be much more arbitrarily chosen that any of us would like to believe. I feel that at $6K, Nikon has firmly addressed the fact that the Dx series bodies have attracted interest from an echelon luxury goods consumers, not just primarily working pros.
I have already expressed more than I should about a camera which still hasn't been officially announced by Nikon.
