Eyewitness report: Nikon D700 cannot be ordered in Germany

In addition to previous reports that the Nikon D700 is being phased out (see here, here and here), today I received another one (this time from Germany):

"I just went into my local store in ***, Germany today to check if they have a D700 in stock. Unfortunately, they did not and when I asked the employee to order one he ran into some problems. Apparently, he could not order new bodies nor the kit D700+24-70 from Nikon because the D700 was listed as "Auslaufmodell" which is German for something like "out of date" or a camera which is soon to be replaced. The employee told me that he will call Nikon on Tuesday morning (there is a holiday on Monday in Germany) and ask what is going on with the D700.  When I asked him about a possible replacement for the D700 (D700s?) he did not have any information for me. I will write to you on Tuesday when I have more information about this, maybe it is just an error in the stores ordering software..."

I've said already that I am not a believer of the "no D700 replacement in 2010" rumor (on some Internet boards this rumor goes even further indicating that no new Nikon DSLRs will be released in 2010).
