D4 - Video does cost us money

There are those that say video doesn't add any cost or minimal cost to the camera since it's just basically software. The D3 didn't have video and it was $4700 when it came out. The D3s had 720p and the price went up to over $5100. Now that the D4 is introduced the specs are similar to the D3s except it has worse battery life and higher video performance (1080p) yet costs $900 more than the previous model. At least some, if not most, of that extra cost is coming from video. If you say it isn't then you're kidding yourself.
