FM style camera with D700 or D800 sensor?

Are there more people in here hoping that Nikon will one day create a simple, compact camera with a modern full frame sensor? A bit like Leica did with the M9 rangefinder, but to the, say, FM3a.

The current D700/D800 are great cameras but bulky. I might be alone in being fine with manual focus, but to me the low light friendly, full frame sensors are what it is all about. I miss proper matte focusing screens too.

In a way Nikon already showed they can do unexpected and great niche things, with the FM3a in particular. The digital age had already begun yet they showed the world they could make a half automatic camera that still worked with full shutter speed range if you took the battery out.

If Nikon creates a 'FD1' or 'DM1' manual focus FX sensor camera, I promise to buy it!
