Nearly deleted this email (I've had half a dozen that started similarly today) until I read it further and realised it came from Nikon. I don't think I'm prepared to order one right now, but will certainly take them up on the free seminar invite! :-) I'll let you know what I think after holding the monster.
We are pleased to introduce to you the new Nikon D4.
Decade after decade, photographers have constantly pushed the boundaries of their craft seeking new frontiers. So too have Nikon flagship DSLRs, and the new Nikon D4 is no exception. As the landscape of professional imaging evolves, Nikon adheres to its mission to adapt to these changes and deliver a superlative performance in both still photography and video.
As an NPS member we are pleased to announce that this product will be available through our priority allocation scheme, which means we will endeavour to make sure you will be the first to receive your camera in the UK. To sign up for this scheme, simply place an order with one of our Nikon Professional Dealers and record your order reference number. We will shortly send you an email with further details on how to register your order with us to ensure you are one of the first to receive your new D4.
Look out for your exclusive invite which will be in the post shortly to our NPS Roadshow taking place in February, where you'll be amongst the first to try the camera out.
