I don't think the pixel count makes any difference at this point and expeed3 is ready (on the j1/v1, that cost under 1K USD). Why would such a camera be more expensive than a D700?

I agree, what's so expensive about using a 36MP sensor in a D700 body? It's the same sized FF wafer just with updated sensor and exspeed technology. Does the semiconductor fab charge by the pixel?
