Did Nikon leak the D600 rumor themselves...

...to relief the pressure from the D800 backorders? I was just thinking I would likely do the same if I had another FX in the works and I couldn't keep up with production on the D800.

A company sabotaging itself? Seriously doubt it. People clamoring for your product isn't something Nikon doesn't want....

What sabotage? As long as people talk positively about you, it's never sabotage. D800 is here, those in doubt can look forward to a D600. That's clever marketing if you ask me

Are you trying to regain the post lead from Robin?

Yes I think it was an official leak by the marketing dept. of course many theories will be flying around about the reason(s). It has gotten my attention big time. The D800(e) seems to be a super DSLR, but out of my league. So a US$1500 FX DSLR with the latest sensor/image processor is an outstanding value.

A 1500$ FF is great! let's hope that'll be the price point...if it is it'll be significant..it'll put pressure on Canon to keep up and deliver an updated affordable FF, it reinforces the rumors about a well priced a99...it'll heed the other players either to release FF at a great value or be left behind. Competition is great for us. I would like a lot a cheaper FF to serve as backup body to my d800, the d600 sounds very promising.
