While I understand that adding wifi and GPS seems blatantly easy and inexpensive, but I also understand that they are more "gimmick" to me than a real use for cameras.

While others have stated there are certain rules and regulations against having wifi and gps in a device, to me they are extra features that are not neccessary and may break down and cause the camera to function properly.

Both these technologies have reached a state where they are very reliable - much more so than many other components in a DSLR.

They should be even more reliable when built into a camera than they are when mounted externally where they can easily get knocked and need to rely on external cables and connectors

Do you really think it would be beyond the capabilities of Nikon engineers to design cameras in such a way that if either of these components failed it would not effect the normal functioning of all the other features of the camera?
