My opinion ? I think anything around $2-2.5k for an APS-C when there is a FF star like D800 for $3k would be unreasonable. Even the bird guys will drop the crop advantage and go FF. I know I would. Any APS-C over $2k is likely to stay on shelves a long long time.
"Like I said before it seems it will be a mini D4 which is designed to be the best FX action body whereas the D800 is a more general purpose camera with it's excellent qualities in quite different areas of performance".
I would agree there is gap between the D4 and the D800 but I am not so sure that gap will be filled by a Dx camera. My gut feeling is, we will see somthing like a D800. Fx but with the bias toward a higher ISO. The fps being address by a battery pack
other things that would be nice: built in pocket wizard and a more affordable full remote control system

The AF system in the D800 and D4 was clearly designed to also work with DX, since it's really smaller than it should be if it were optimized for FX, so we should see it soon in the top of the line DX camera.
I'd like to see a real pro finder this time - quality threaded attachments, viewfinder shutter. I'm tired of the light shield slipping off and losing those little clips that close off the finder when shooting on a tripod. I don't want to always use manual exposure.
While I would be very happy with a 24mp D400, my preference would be for something similar to FX, where there are two cameras - a D400 (16mp emphasis on light) and D400x (40mp, no AA, emphasis resolution) together
People are going to gravitate to mirrorless unless Nikon completes the DX lens range so people can use the more compact and economical DX system for all the photo applications for which they now have to move to FX or are tempted to the mirrorless EVF leaders Olympus / Fuji / Sony - 24mm f.1.4 DX, 16 or 18mm f/1.4 or 1.8 DX, 16mm f/3.5 PC-E DX, 60mm f/1.2 (DX or FX, happy with either at this focal length), 50-135 f/2.8 DX with VR, and a 12mm f/2.8 or 9.5mm f/4 with low distortion for architecture and interiors.
If they don't want to produce these lenses for DX, at least produce them for their new compact mirrorless APS-C camera with a nice new mount - make it clear they want to dominate this market from the get-go.
FX IQ is getting caught fast by DX and is likely to be mainly just the difference in DOF soon.
How do we re post our user photos on the new NR website? I searched for how to do it. I did have to re-register to get on the new site.thanks,DaveyJ
