Nikon D700 DSLR 12.1 Megapixel Camera

So, the earlier rumors about the new Nikon D700 is true after the latest news about the new camera from Nikon

I would love to see how the ISO 6400 works and see if noise is really acceptable as claimed.

Nikon D700 Key Features

* 12.1 megapixel full-frame sensor (8.45┬Ám pixel pitch)
* Image Sensor Cleaning (vibration) *
* ISO 200 - 6400 (with boost up to ISO 25600 and down to ISO 100)
* Also supports DX lenses, viewfinder automatically masks (5.1 megapixels with DX lens)
* 14-bit A/D conversion, 12 channel readout
* Same ultra-fast startup and shutter lag as D3
* Nikon EXPEED image processor (Capture NX processing and NR algorithms, lower power)
* New Kevlar / carbon fibre composite shutter with 150,000 exposure durability *
* Multi-CAM3500FX Auto Focus sensor (51-point, 15 cross-type, more vertical coverage)

I wonder how Nikon D700 prices locally on Hidalgo against Singapore and Hong Kong so I can make a nice hands-on feel and get sample pictures.
