Can't make an SLR without video anymore. It's a given standard feature on SLRs from the very bottom to the very top of the line. Would be like making a car without a stereo system because one random guy doesn't want one in his car

I don't know if I agree with this.  There's marketing opportunity there to exploit.  People pay big money for hot-rodded stripped down automobiles that do one or two things very well and are otherwise limited.

If they marketed a camera for heavy shooters that were serious about shooting and none of the fluff-fluff useless features they could create a new niche for themselves.  Seems senseless to leave out what has become a trivial addition from a difficulty standpoint but that's marketing...pure marketing.
