Nikon D4

The much awaited Nikon D4 was announced last night (Pacific Time) and if the specs pan out, this will be a killer camera.  With the D3s as my primary work horse, I have come to rely on the high speed capture rate (frames per second) and the second to none low light noise free shooting.  I can’t tell you how many times this camera has saved my bacon when it comes to shooting in the low light conditions of first or last light of the day.  Night city-scapes are also a breeze when shooting with the D3s.  In reading the specifications of the D4, it looks like nothing but a GRAND improvement over the D3s and I simply can’t wait to get my hands on one.  As soon as I run this camera through its paces, I will report back with my observations.  With any luck, I will own one of these before my trip to Africa in March.  Meanwhile, you can read about the D4 over at B& H Photo.  And now, here is the D4 with an estimated price of $6,400 US – OUCH.
