I'm hoping the introduction and sell-out of the black Nikon SP drives up
the price of the original SP's.  I doubt that mere mortals can or will
pay out $7000 USD to have an authentic black SP.  I certainly cannot.

... Karen's hope for a clean Nikon SP for US$ 1500 is quite feasible. In
last year prices in Tokyo have dropped by almost 40% and will probably
further after the introduction of the Limited Edition black paint Nikon
SP. It is a 
gorgeous camera and I would dearly love one, but at $7000+ I can resist
(now the lens is an other matter - a modern 35/1,8 could be interesting
and most 
likely a bit more flare resistant than my old one)....
