Well because D series has more to offer now.
If $300-500 more for better technology is your concern, paying $300+ extra for getting 8000 over 7000 over a no difference other than bezel does not make sense.
C8000 isn't a great buy anymore... If you want to get a good looking tv with budget in mind, I would just get UND7000 or PND8000.
Just my 2 cents.
