Nikon-D810-camera
The UK website Expertreviews published their review of the Nikon D810 camera and then promptly removed it. Here are the details from the article - pretty much what I have ben reporting for months now:

  • the UK price will be £2,700 (around $4,580, the US price should be lower)
  • sensor: 36.3MP (new sensor?)
  • LCD screen: 3.2" (1,299K dots) with new split-screen mode
  • card slots: CF + SDXC
  • Expeed 4 image processing engine
  • no optical low pass filter (OLPF)
  • ISO 32-51200 in extended mode, ISO 64-12800 in regular mode
  • shutter speed range: 1/8000-30s
  • improved auto-focus (including Group Area AF mode for the D4s)
  • no 4k video
  • video recording: added 50/60p
  • redesigned shutter with new kevlar/carbon fibre-composite unit; reduced shutter lag; quieter operation
  • the metering mode button is moved to the main control dial
  • improved grip
