What everyone apparently fails to appreciate here is that Nikon is following the oft-quoted ice hockey maxim of skating to where the puck hasn't been yet. It's not really their fault they think the puck will slide across the ice to the middle of the Sahara Desert.
Or to put it more simply, they're bringing to market a camera design that they haven't tried before and doesn't exist now.
They're trying to exploit the group of people that don't want video in the DSLR (a small percentage that will just grow smaller over time) and appreciate the retro look (a pure fashion claim.)
What it shows is that Nikon is desperate to create a new market and sell cameras...
