I cant quite figure out why the full frame cameras are so much more $$ than the DX versions.

For example, if you took the 7100 and simply swapped out the sensor and replaced with a full frame sensor and processor and mechanics, how much more $$ would the camera cost to make?

Someone said the exact same thing about the D7000, that is how we end up with the D600, the D610 is the same thing with less oil splatter, so when it is up for upgrade we willl have a D620 that probably is what you are asking for, a D7100 with FF sensor.

At that time D7000 was $1100, the D600 was $1800, so there is your answer it would cost $700 more.
