The first Nikon D4 is already listed on eBay by an authorized US dealer. The starting price is $6,999.95. Let's see for how much it will sell tomorrow.
There is another listing here.
Here is the answer from Cameta Camera (Ebay D4 auction):
Nikon D4 Digital SLR Camera Body with:
EN-EL18 Li-ion Battery
MH-26 Quick Charger
USB Cable Clip
Accessory Shoe Cover
Connector Cover for Stereo Mini Plug Cable
Connector Cover for USB Cable
Nikon View NX2 CD-ROM
Transmitter Utility CD
So I guess no XQD card + reader for free !
If it were me I’d take the XQD card + reader out and sell them seperately…you make more money that way ?
Not sure it’s good marketing or a sign of desperation giving away a free card and reader, probably a bit of both.
someone in malaysia is trying to sell it at a 7+k price point. Let the complaints keep rolling puahahaha… d800 come fast : http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nikon-D4-Digital-SLR-Camera-Body-16-2-MP-Black-NEW-official-nikon-product-/320868520246?pt=Digital_Cameras&hash=item4ab5411136
And it didn’t sell.
So, shockingly, the market decided $7k is too high for a $6k camera and didn’t buy it. And Cameta is out the listing costs. If only markets worked without regulation.
Anyone here on nikonrumors receive their D4 or even has a notice it it shipping yet?
It makes sense if I was in that position and didnt need the camera I’d do the same. For the next couple of months the D4 and D800 will probably be overpriced outside of official stores, the demand is high and the supply won’t be much so its a market where you can raise the price and not look like you’re mad, which is the exact reason why I preordered.
I have mine.
Did it came with the Sony XQD 16GB card+reader ?
In the UK if you buy a D4 before the 28th of May it will include the free XQD card and reader.
Link pls? Calumet Photo charges for extra XQD card (32 GB) and doesn’t say if there is reader included :/
No retailer said there would be a free card and reader, it’s an after thought from Nikon.
Oh Boy, I preordered at calumet and paid pre charge for being First delivered! When calling several at least they told me that they have only got 4 and that they Need it for demo!
Yeah, operating a Photo shop could be really fun if there wouldn’t be the customers!
it did but the box was unsealed and lid wouldn’t fully close my guess is only the first batches will be like that.
Are we absolutely sure that these places HAD preorders? Maybe they didnt take any because they knew they could make more money by doing this when it came out..
when is d400 (or next semi pro dx body) coming?
I think that d7000 took the place of both the d90 and d300 (or even d300s) for now. might have to wait till end of the year or next before some d400 (which might not be called 400… thinking d9000 O_O)
I hope that’s not the case as the d7000 is not even close to the speed/precision of the D300, at least not for small bird in flight
I asked Nikon what the warranty period was for the D4 and D800.
Hello Mr. Lynch
Thank you for submitting your question.
For warranty information please see:
Answer Title: Nikon Digital Imaging Warranty
Answer Link: http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/333
When you follow the above link, you see that the D4 only has a one year warranty… The F5 had five years.
Then I noticed:
1. This warranty extends to the original consumer purchaser only and is not assignable or transferable.
So all the D4 and D800 cameras that pop up on eBay from dealers that are not authorized Nikon resellers will loose the warranty from Nikon.
The above html did not work..
Nikon website (http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/16192) says the warranty for lenses is one year, but extended to five if you buy from an authorized dealer. I haven’t seen anything similar for camera bodies.
Nikkor lenses come with a standard one year warranty and Nikon Inc. lenses sold by authorized dealers will have a Nikon Inc. Five Year Extension.”
you can purchase a warranty extension. it is offered by nikon.
Found a D4 at best buy. Picked it up today
