It seems curious that the video is concentrating on clicking a wheel on the top right, where the shutter-speed dial traditionally is on film cameras, but it also seems to have a wheel on top right. Or maybe it's not curious, maybe it's just a retro-look feature.

Looks cool, there are so many cameras I want now and none of them are Canon's.  Maybe it's time to start thinking about selling some of it off?

Perfectly happy with my Canon which I've had for nearly 6 years now and about 250k shutter operations. Not to mention 400k sales.

It's not the arrows Son __ it's the Indian.

Every day I see something that's better than my 5DII and 60D bodies, but I don't jump. Why? Because the day after I buy something new, there will be something even better that I'll want.  ;D

I'm trying REALLY hard to be thankful for what I have, which is much more than so many others.

I've been shooting the D800 for a couple of years now and I don't see this new one as an improvement so I'm out.

They want to make a retro style camera. It is the new trend, right?
Something similar (in appearance) to the FM.

Finally somebody has understood that old is better!
It is very fashion to be old today (I am) :)

It will be bigger and more expensive (I have heard about 3000 )

I would be nice if Nikon simply concentrated on building a camera that works right out of the box.  I dumped my D800's, D600's and have had my D7100 (all three of them) in to Nikon Hollywood up to four times for focus issues. I just bought another D7100 from a different camera store than B&H in hopes of getting one that focused edge to edge with a prime lens.  No luck.  Took it in to Nikon and the mirror was +20 off from the sensor, making the edges out of focus but the middle sharp.  And because I am shooting underwater, I have to change housings each time I change bodies, which is another $3500 to $5000.  I can speak for Canon but Nikon in my opinion has made a business decision to coddle the consumer market and put the Professional market on the bottom of its list of priorities.  After all, most images look good at web resolution and can produce prints that hide the flaws that you see when zoomed in at 100%.  For pros, whose customers expect high resolution, end to end quality, I've been really disappointed.  However, even my D600's couldn't be used for web or prints because the amount of oil that was found its way onto the sensor made the images virtually unusable.  So what does Nikon do FINALLY? Admit they had a problem, come out with the D610 (new shutter box design).  Same exact body, just different internal design.

If you have any problem with the D800 it will be the left spot focus issue.  Google it. Hopefully they have fixed that issue and you get a newer serial number.

I think Nikon jumped on the retro bandwagon when the buzz is already fizzling out a bit.

Neither Nikon or Canon are pushing the envelope. They seem content with incremental updates to milk their existing lineup and trying to copy other brands' hot niche products. Sony is innovating. Canon and Nikon are lost at how to respond.

I have a 5DMII and a D800. Like them both. But I absolutely love my NEX-7 so the new 7R is pretty tempting.

I'm SO fed up with the "lets make everything look retro" phase that the design world is going through! I like my modern toys tools to look modern.

ditto, but there's not much you can do about it. the hipsters are at the wheel and we must all jump aboard.

A D7100 is around $1,000 and has mostly better specs than this.

Comparable Fuji and Olympus cameras are around $1,000.

So this camera is over $2,700 because... ???
