New Nikon D4 cameras are hard to find in the US, but you can still get refurbished models at those retailers:

    Hopefully, the D4 firmware update will be released soon!

    Small edit to it, Best Buy actually doesn’t sell it. It’s a marketplace item so it’s actually sold by Roberts LP

    New D4 bodies are getting rare in the UK too, WEX have some but the prices are creeping up, a few weeks ago they were £4199, now WEX has them for £4225. The same thing hapened when the D3s came out, D3 bodies went up in price not down.

    I think Grays in the UK also have some at £4199…£1000 cheaper than the D4s.

      WEX talked to Nikon about the D4s, here’s a quote and link…
      “Nikon also says that, in terms of visible noise, the new model should
      show an improvement of around 1EV between ISO 6400-25,600 over the D4.
      So, results at ISO 6400 on the D4S, for example, should resemble those
      achievable at ISO 3200 on the D4. This is, at least in part, thanks to
      the Expeed 4 processing engine which processes noise from different
      parts of the image in different ways, depending on whether those parts
      are in focus.”
      “Users of current Nikon pro-level DSLRs may be disappointed to learn that
      as many of the camera’s improvements are hardware-based – such as the
      sensor and changes to the AF system – it wouldn’t be possible to deliver
      these to older models via a firmware update”

          Very cool. This is like a GoPro video but twice as awesome.

          How can this be so desperately lo-res? shouldn’t be a promotional video?

        JPG users rejoice. RAW-only users not that much (assuming RAW is not cooked, which would be bad anyway).

        • Terry Hansen

          In my workflow, I have zero use for in-camera JPEGs, shooting exclusively RAW. Do we know for a fact that the Expeed 4 engine has NO effect on how the sensor records its information to a RAW file (I honestly do not know)? If there is no effect, then you’d be absolutely right that the Expeed engine does nothing for image quality of RAW.

          That said, since it sounds like this is a new and physically different sensor from all previous D-series models, perhaps some, or even all, of the claimed improvements in noise reduction are actually based in the sensor itself, and thus possibly giving actual improvement to RAW capture. Anyone have knowledge or a comment about this?

          In any case, what I’m waiting for is a head to head comparison of high ISO RAW files for D4 and D4s (and, heck, while you’re at it, throw in a D3s). And, preferably, from someone who has calibrated their lenses to bodies and actually achieves proper, critical focus–that one early comparison we’ve all been looking at is SO bogus due to focus issues.

      I also noticed used D4s on ebay were in the $4500 (USD) range prior to the D4s announcement. After the D4s announcement with the $6500 pricetag they all went up to the $4800-$5000 range.

      • D700guy

        That’s what I want to hear.

  • Bayou Bill

    Giving up the full one-year warranty for a 90-day one just to save 10% sounds like a bad bet on such an expensive item.

  • D700guy

    I wonder what the market will bear for a used D4?
    If I do buy a D4s I’ll need to sell my existing D4 and hopefully get a fair price.

    • Naval Gunfire

      The longer you hold on to your D4 the less you will get for it. If you are going to do it, I’d do it sooner rather than later.

  • lord eels

    I’d say the d4 is still a good move if you absolutely need a bulletproof camera today. it’s a known quanity and it’s had it’s critical 2 firmware updates that all cameras seemingly require these days before becoming dependable.

    • KnightPhoto

      D4 owner likewise standing pat and planning for a D5. If I could get “in and out” of a D4S closer to $1500, it would be possible for me to think about it, but in reality due to higher Canadian pricing now, it looks like a $2500 sell/buy difference which is more than I want to contemplate.

      So… near-term priorities for me are 105mm Micro, 300 f/4 VR, V3.

      How about an EXPEED4 based D900 update to the D800? That camera may be easier for me to sell/buy for a decent enough uplift that the upgrade would make it higher up on my priority list.

      D4S does look great though.

    For $5,922 Canadian dollars you can also get a full (I believe two-year) warranty D4 here and it’s in-stock:

    There’s a lot said and written about how sensors compare, with the release of the D4s you’ll see comparison after comparison of the D4s v whatever camera. Get a bit of perspective about sensors, don’t confuse marketing hype with reality and remember how you take images, high iso ability means little if you always shoot below 3200.
    DxOMark is often quoted as a benchmark sensor test, go to the site and compare the D3, D3s and D4 sensors for yourself and you’ll quickly realise how small the differences actually are. I’ve added this quick side by side, but check it out for yourself…and make up your own mind.

    • Naval Gunfire

      I’m surprised how far behind Canon are lagging when it comes to sensors to be honest.

  • bit of truth

    Seems like every other post on Nikon Rumors nowadays is nothing more than a collection of affiliated links to various product pages on Ebay, Amazon, B&H, etc.

    NR admin, can you stop peddling so hard already? If I wanted to buy a refurbished D4, I would’ve figured out a way of googling it. I know that you are not working for free, but not need to be so obvious about it.

    Unrelated: B&H/Adorama recently lowered their prices for Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G. Used to be $1999, now it’s $1899. What could it mean?

    • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

      I haven’t see that – maybe it’s part of the lens rebates?

      • http://iAlan.com Alan Aurmont

        Says nothing about rebates on the B&H website. I paid $1999 + NY tax for it a couple of months ago. I wonder why it went down in price.

        • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

          I think I paid $2099 for mine a while back. My guess is that it is not selling that well and they dropped the price. I love that lens btw.

          • http://iAlan.com Alan Aurmont

            Yeah, love it too. Love how it renders images. My favorite street lens. I’m a sucker for wide angles.
