You say it like everyone here has spare 6 thousand dollars =))))))

I'll decide when I see the specs on the D800 if and whenever that comes out.  

This best news about the Nikon D4 pre-orders: It's gonna be used camera heaven to people who want D700's and D3's! 

D4 Great Camera, Nikon is a Nikon ( my 5Dmk2 say goodbye :) )

It's funny to see how many used D3s, and D700's are popping up on eBay over the past few days..

I've never spent over $2k on a camera and I've been a pro for 7 years. This camera tempted me today and I preorderd a $6000 camera... My car isn't worth much more than that. I figure that this thing will hold its value and if I ever decide it is too much for me I can sell it. I bet once I use it won't want to shoot with anything else though. 

i pre-ordered one today. By the time i sell my D3s, i'll only be shelling out $1,500-$2,000. Upgrading is wonderful :)

I just became part of the preorder group as well.  The advantages of the video/audio upgrades will be worth it's weight in gold.  And like Lee said, this camera will hold it's value for a really long time.  The D700 has been the closest camera I've ever had to the flagship but it's time I grow up....well and hanging around all these photographers with 600mm lenses doesn't help either :)

Yup, just pre-ordered as well. I didn't make the Amazon cutoff and I never have trusted Adorama (long story). So I was going to wait until Feb 16th when B&H was supposed to put it on sale. I didn't expect that they would do a pre-order. Well, I'm in line now. Unfortunately, I'll only be selling my D300 and keeping my D700, so I'll pretty much pay the whole nut (ouch!).

I pre-ordered at B&H within 10 minutes of them opening up for orders. After calling them I was told I was #50 on the list and there are several hundred pre-orders. Either there are tons of people in the top 1% or lots of people will be canceling their order when their number is up.
