The link I found isn't working, so that may be a clue.
I think it is entirely illogical that Nikon would sell this camera for that price. If Nikon Rumors is right, and they have generally been right, this camera is built on the less expensive consumer body and that market will not pay that price. If it is going to be announced, I suspect it will be in the 1500 to 1800 range. Which should be a great deal for lots of folks.
This will also be a great second camera and reinforces the idea that the bodies and sensors are becoming the throw away "razor blades" to the permanent and more expensive lenses (shavers).
