Being out of stock doesn't mean it's popular, it just means they were a limited production run camera. Somehow I doubt they sold in the millions, maybe a few thousand at best, considering the price tag.
Here's a crazy idea that would distinguish this from the rest of Nikon's lineup.LEAF SHUTTERI will be all over this if they give it a leaf shutter, especially if they can get the shutter speed down to 1/8000th!
Thom Hogan wrote a good piece on this, and gives a good reason why Nikon might be going with the 16MP sensor, rather than the newer ones.
Leaf shutter....mmmm......Monochrome......this sounds very interesting. At least to someone who bought Plus-X by the 100' rolls in the 1960's....Does anyone know how monochrome affects the high ISO of a sensor? Does this mean a top ISO of 800,000 for the D4 sensor when changed to B & W? Yikes! Even the Leica monochrom has 10,000 ISO from a sensor design nearly 10 years old.

Leaf shutters are built in lenses so I really doubt it.
Actually that is not correct at all. The focus on added sensitivity is mostly a Leica hype thing ... My experience has been that leica shooters are wonderful image creators but horrifically technically illiterate. Bayer sensors (no such thing as filter) capture light (actually reads intensity of) each primary color spread throughout the sensor in various patterns.
Elvishefer...sorry no video. See the updated specs.
any guesses what it will be called D400 ??? or D710 ????
This could be a great idea, or it could be really cheesy. The FM2 was a great little enthusiast's camera: i really loved mine. I would say that in order to be "retro" the main feature would be a minimum of plastic. How are you going to make a 1.8G lens retro?
Still Wonder what "Hybrid" means?
If the want to make this really retro they need to make it a pancake style the lens to look like the E series 50mm F1.8/50mm F1.8 AI-S. - See more at: http://forum.nikonrumors.com/discussion/1742/nikon-retro-f-mount-camera-fm2-style#Item_70
Nikon patented a hybrid viewfinder back in 2011, so I suppose it might be something along these lines.
