It's the Df.

Or, just ignore the video record button on your camera.

I do ignore the video button. I have it remapped to ISO on my D750. My fear though is that if Nikon did produce a standard DSLR style body without video (not DF form factor) it would probably go for the same price or similar to a body with video. I would only entertain the idea of no video if there was a distinct price advantage or if it added a feature or two to replace the lack of video which would justify a high price.

You are right on the $.

The video functionality is part of the Expeed chip-set.   The cost is there whether they add the video button or not.   Dropping video likely saves a few pennies per body to leave off the buttons.
