An unusual way of thinking is that maybe Nikon knows that a D4 with 16MP and faster fps and better Low iso noise ability (at 6400 iso or more), in a rugged pro body is more desirable than a D800 to many photographers who wish they could afford a D4, over a higher 36 MP camera, which is one of many reasons why D4 costs more (I know there are other reasons too, within the body construction for superior ISO and AF speed). Usually the higher priced item is often the more desirable, partly from functional advantages of that camera. Not sure if Nikon will give us a D750 with 16-24MP sensor but one can only hope, and at a price between 2500 up to 3000 for this pro body, is okay with me.

I know the comparison of manufacturing costs of potential D750 and D4 is not so simple to compare and there are lots of reasons why D4 costs more (such as fewer units made in production, cost more each unit I am told).

Despite the reasoning that a D750 could eat into D4 sales, would not the many extra units of sales of D750 more than make up for this loss of D4 sales. We do not need the D4 pro body, a pro body like D700/800 is great, in D750 with high fps and reasonable 16-24 MP for Raw users and great iso noise levels.
