From where do you get your information on their profit margins?

Mr. Nikon calls me daily and feeds me info like this.

For that pirce can I get a PW transmitter built in? (I've never thought of it but that would be a cool idea and free up the camera top.) Or maybe GPS?

Kind of like when the 5d mk II came out, the LP-E6 batteries were $200 each and really hard to get for the first month and a half.

There is a point where the price of the body + grip is so steep that I might as well save and get a 1D body.
