Hard drives are cheap enough these days, unlike the new camera, which will no doubt be waaay more expensive than the Nikon D800E.
Yea, I know. I can keep adding HD's to my Mac, which should keep things ticking along for the next couple of years. But you're not wrong about the price, I think it may come as a bit of a shock to the system given i've got a feeling they aren't going to go down Nikon's route, and will put it in a 1D series body.
My feelings are generally completely wrong however
