My guess: a D70 with the D200 sensor in it, or if not the D200 sensor, then the 2-channel readout sensor used in the Sony Alpha.

Yes. It's very unlikely to be any other 10.2M pixel sensor. I think the latter is more likely. It'll probably be 3 frames/second and don't need 4 channels of readout.

I guess it will also have the large screen of the D200 too. Probably a D200 sensor and screen, with plasticy body and a less good AF (possibly a new module).

The big question is will it fit in existing D200 or possibly D70 housings?

This might give me the excuse I needed to pull the AA filter pack off my D70 and turn it into a dedicated infra red body.

Interesting that the normally inscrutable and very close-mouthed Nikon is actually doing some marketing. Here's hoping they have the production capacity in place to meet demand.
Why would I take a perfectly good camera underwater??

I think they are saying: Wait. Don't go and order that Sony A100 yet.

They also announced the D70 way before ship date for similar reasons.

Well...is the extra 4 megapixels worth an upgrade from the D70S?

HI,

It would be great if it would fit in my D70 Seacam housing :) :D

So I would not have to save up for a D200 + housing :) :D

Why would anyone use equipment from a company that created the RS debacle? This is a company a day late--a dollar short and never failing to abandon customers. I don't think I care what they come out with--Mess with me once shame on you mess with me twice shame on me--or words to that effect. Count me as a Canon user folks.
