2008 Shimano XT

At my work today I saw some pictures of the 08 XT. Very nice stuff it looks close to XTR and there's XT pedals now. I might have to switch from my X9 can't wait till the fall to get a good look at it.

Shadow RD, lighter then a traditional derailleur, question is : how much will it be because if its better and lighter then a normal traditional derailleur, why Shimano is still keeping the traditional derailleur??
