Next camera will be an exact D700 clone with a 24-28MP sensor for €5000, released within weeks, maybe called D900.

I think Nikon will never (in this day and age) introduce cameras with a pricepoint seriously above €5000 on release. Looking at the past €5000 seems like the sweet spot for the marketing people and that they think a much higher price might make releasing a camera relatively less profitable. Hence no FF for so long.

Since D200 the smaller bodies have become more popular than the big ones. The standard MD-10 grip is in my eyes a fruit of that trend. As a high MP camera is the dream of many landscapers/studio hogs it would make sense to create a light body for it.

Ok, whishfull thinking, I know, but I have a strange nagging feeling I could be more or less right, for once.
