Now $779.95 at Amazon.

Does this suggest the D90 replacement is about to make its debut?

No, it means people aren't buying DSLRs as much anymore. Some people are
finally getting smarter.

It's the normal product run price drop. Pretty well all dSLRs have price
drops 6 months or so after intro.

Yes, but then they generally stabilize. The D90 was introduced in August
2008 to replace the D80, which was then two years old. If Nikon continues
model changes about biannually at this camera level (as it has more or less
since the D100) then it seems early for a replacement, but on the other hand
there must be some reason for the recent downturn in D90 prices. Nikon
*increased* the price of their lenses not long ago, and there hasn't been
much if any increase in the value of the dollar.

In the past, such price drops this late in a model run have often preceded
introduction of a new model.

The D90 was launched August 2009, which based on Nikon's timeline means it
will be replaced August 2011,,
