No more than $1,500, $2500 is OK

I want the latest CAM module operable to F8, I want one that focuses succesfully 100% of the time under all conditions
Number must be DXXX to show it's a (semi) pro body
You don't need a (semi) pro DX camera, the D800(E) has a DX mode.
Did I miss anything?

Give this specification to a design team and ask them for a camera that fits the bill.
Comments are 'tongue in cheek'

Actually, IMHO, the reason a D300(s) body isn't made is just because it isn't profitable. For some reason, the 7D sells well. If Canon doesn't make a Mark 2 version of 7D, there's no reason Nikon should even think of a D400.
