    You think it will wedge itself, financially, between the 8.2mp 20D and
    the 12.8mp 5D? Pure speculation has me thinking that it will debut in
    the $2500 to $3000 range, slightly less than the 5D and _roughly_ twice
    as much as the 20D. Without really having memorized the specs, this
    camera seems like it might make the D2X obsolete, no? Same flash sync
    speed, same DX format CMOS sensor - 1.5 crop, same ISO capability
    (100-800), though fewer FPS, etc. Perhaps the D2X will remain the pros
    pro camera, especially for sports, and hoi-palloi Nikonians wanting
    12mp will now reach for the D200. Thoughts?

    The original list price of the D100 (21-Feb-02) was US$1999. BTW, the price
    development for the D100 was as follows:

    Feb-02: US$1999
    May-03: US$1699
    Dec-03: US$1499
    May-05: US$999

    When looking at the list price for previous models, e.g. the D1= US$5000 and
    D2X = US$4999, Nikon seems to position its cameras in categories (beginner
    D??, intermediate D???, professional D?H and D?X) such that they have
    similar list prices at introduction. Hence, I think the list price of the
    D200 at introduction will be US$1999. Based on the same, I believe that the
    D3H will list for around $3400 and the D3X will be listed at around $5000.

    Sure since the US dollar lost value compared to other currency, this might
    bend the list price of the D200 towards US$2,200.

    But where is the D200 anyway?
