I'll be happy if they do make one. If it even performs as well as the OM-D, I'll likely buy one unless it's price is far north of $1500. For that kind of money I'll spend a few extra bucks and get a FF body. Given what an E-7 retails for, the price of this new modern sensor E camera is likely to be pushing the price of a D600.

I don't mind paying the same price as a D600 body, because I don't just pay for the sensor, but I also expect a pro-body and the finesses that the D600 lacks.

Not sure I would be willing to. I love the ergonomics of the E1, the E3-E5 not as much. I'm fine with the ergonomics of the D7000 and the build quality seem fine. I think the D600 is the same body isn't it? If so that's "good enough" for what I do.

Anyway maybe it's my smaller hands but I've never been a fan of those big "pro" bodies and seems counter intuitive for a 4/3 camera to have a camera body the size of a pro FF one.

I do love the olympus dust buster and clearly the D600 isn't ready for prime time in that respect. I will wait and see if nikon addresses that problem before I buy one
