D3/D4 line is 1-2% of Nikon total DSLR sales.

do the math, they need to cover all the R&D and developmental/tooling costs with a same quality of cameras.

The D700 sales are about 3-5% of total DSLR sales, again a small quantity sold, that is why the D800 is going to be much higher in price also.

Thus 90% of all DSLR sales comes from the DX lines, the production demand covers the R&D costs easier.

Then we have the dollar/yen valuation issue....
