I admit the retro design has its charm, but (much as with Leica's digital offerings) it seems to be targeting people who place far too much value on style nostalgia for my liking. I'll take a D800 and pocket the healthy chunk of change, thanks all the same.

Here is a hypothetical interview with Nikon:

Q: I see this camera uses a 16MP sensor, from the D4, so this must be a flagship sensor too.
A: No actually the sensors of the D610 and D800 are much better according to DxO
Q: Ah but this low res must allow this camera to shoot very fast, 10fps or better.
A: No, actually it shoots at 5.5fps slower than our D610
Q: Hmm, but it must have class leading shutter speed, 1/16000
A: No, actually it same as our entry level cameras at 1/4000
Q: Ummm, err, oh yeah, well it must have the flagship AF system right
A: No, actually it has same AF as D5300 and D610, middle of the road
Q: Ah, but it must have old school battery life and run forever out in the wilds
A: No, actually it has a very small battery with below average number of shots
Q: Well it must be very cheap then, cheaper than D610?
A: No, actually it is much dearer.
Q: Ok, then what is the point of this camera?
A: To get old farts to part with a lot of money to relive old time memories.

That must be me you are referring to. Someone who would prefer a Stradivarius to a Yamaha electric keyboard. Sadly Nikon have completely failed on every count and clearly do not understand the draw of classic camera controls over button covered electronic toys. On top of that there is the insulting price, must think we are fools.
