It looks like Nikon USA is running a $300 rebate on the D700. With the rebate, I have seen prices as low as $2400 at some stores (I can only assume that is a Nikon USA model). For example, Costco is showing $2450 for now: http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=11303803&search=nikon%20D700 I haven't been able to find any rebate info directly from Nikon USA yet, e.g. what else are on the rebate program. If you are about to buy a D700, I'd say wait another day or two to find out what is going on. Hopefully this is not a false alarm. P.S. Please don't ask me why Costco is also recommending the 55-200mm DX lens on that same page with the D700.
