Bet it won't happen...

No, I'm not going to switch to Canon any time soon (I'm too invested
in Nikon lenses, plus I just prefer Nikon cameras), but the 5DII is
an impressive addition to the marketplace. I love the fact that it'll
hold Nikon's feet to the fire and increase the pressure on them to
get their own high MP camera out, as well as pressure them to lower
their prices to stay competitive. So in the long run, we all benefit.
Thanks Canon.

MY guess is that Nikon's next announcement will be their 24 MP full-frame professional-level camera, and it will be in the $6000 price range. I doubt that Nikon will want to bother competing in the high-megapixel consumer-body arena. I don't see the 5DII in that specialized niche, which they've already addressed (exceeded) with the D700, putting any pressure on Nikon. Even the 5D Canon fan-boys are poo-pooing the concept of 24 megapixels in that little camera.
