Well the rumors are real...

dpr preview

It was released with the SB-900, 45mm and 85mm PC-E lenses.

When people compared the D200 as 70% of the D2X, I'd say the D700 is more like 95% of the D3... if you add the battery grip, you get 8 fps. I can't see anything else that is missing? Identical sensor and AF as the D3, two "live view" modes, electronic virtual horizon, active D-lighting, DX mode, HD LCD, it all seems to be there. The viewfinder coverage seems hindered by the built in flash. As for the pro-build, the Nikon site states: "Rugged magnesium-alloy construction: Along with extensive dust and moisture protection and a durable shutter mechanism tested to 150,000 cycles, the D700 merges pro D-SLR performance with expanded agility." I believe it will be priced at $3,000 USD. I'm guessing the D3 will drop to $4k -- that is only a guess and I have nothing to base that on.
