There's quite a hole between $549 - the real price of a D5100 - and $1399. and the D7000 is selling like hotcakes at $999. And an even lower-priced FX camera is just laughable.

+1.  I find it interesting few Nikon users have made this observation about the price gap between the D5100 and the D7000.  All along the launch price of the D7000 should've been $999USD, not $1,199USD.  Is there a market for a no-frills pentaprism DX body (that my pinky finger won't dangle off the bottom of like it does on the D5100) for $799?  I don't know.  But I'd certainly buy such a camera.
