The price is high due to company financials and flat out corporate greed. Did you read the recent financial report from Nikon? It was not exactly upbeat. If anything it means a possible continued decline for DSLRs. New models are priced higher so that development can continue with similar life cycle as in the past.

Then there is the second factor -- greed. The new Nikon management does not accept its own mistakes. It passes them on to the customers. The loss on all the D600 cameras and the redesign of a new model had to be paid for. Nikon is dumping the cost on the group most willing to pay for it, the Df customers. If they had simply priced the D610 higher than the D600, sales would have had too much decline worldwide. The end result is Df customers get screwed for Nikon's mistakes.

I do not understand this??? No one HAS to buy it.

Then don't buy Df, if you cannot afford it or don't like the price. Otherwise, you are forced to pay the added cost. There is no alternative. Pay up or else is the Nikon management modus operandi.
