First Nikon D4 shipment delayed till March 15th

Pin It

According to multiples sources, the first shipment of Nikon D4 cameras is delayed. The original date of February 16th is now pushed till March 15th, 2012. The reason for the delay seems to a be firmware bug and not a hardware issue. This appears to be a worldwide delay, not specific to a country or a region. The US press release listed the Nikon D4 availability as "late February".

    I recieved a ” I am inviting you” Card with a (D4 pic) from nikon uk, are they still going ahead with the shows in UK? and showcasing a “buggy or non buggy D4″

    Also how much profit do nikon actually make on a D4?

    Could it be that this first D4 shipment left the port with the firmware bug, and all others are delayed until March 15th? Any information on the validity and nature of the firmware bug rumor?

    Spoke to a Nikon Employe today about the delivery of my camera: he said, there will be no delivery before march!
    He also told me, they (NPS austria) only have one D4, which is not a regular one and makes some troubles – problem is the firmware…
    so maybe you were right again, admin… ;)

    “Unfortunately” it seems nikonrumors is once more right… The official statement from Nikon Switzerland is saying there was tooo many pre-orders etc
    As somebody else stated here: Just naive people will believe in that…. :-)

    Im happy that I canceled my pre order for the D4, and held on to my D3s – now I will wait for a year for the D4s before update.
