Nikon D4 announcement in 3-4 hours

I believe Nikon will announce the Nikon D4, AF-S 85mm f/1.8G lens and probably the Nikon WT-5 wireless transmitter tonight, around midnight EST. I think the January 10th date on the leaked Wells Fargo article was a mistake.

Here is another Nikon event in Kuala Lumpur:

Nikon Product launch at Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Jalan Imbi, Kuala Lumpur at 12:30pm.

    • BartyL

      Depends how excited you are…

  • James Brown

    This reminds me of a quote. “Isn’t it funny a ship that leaks from the top” ..

  • T.I.M

    I’m going to bed now, but the tonight annoucement will help me to wakeup faster in the morning and check my favorite website: Nikon Rumors !

  • jdsl


    Oh!! Lol 🙂

    • hi

  • Bill

    My iPhone will make better photos.

    • D3S Guy

      Then go visit

  • Must I hold my breath?

    • hi

      you may get asphyxiated!

  • Nine

    It’s 2:23am in the U.K but i might just have to stay up and wait!!!

    • broxibear

      Screw that, I should have been asleep ages ago…I need to get up in a few hours.
      I’ll have a look in the morning at the new coolpixes I mean D4 lol.

    • hi

      you may get plenty of cofee! 😉

  • Up $#!t’s creek

    the images of the d4 did get me tingly…

  • Show us the Photo (iso 100 DR ISO 6400 DR) and Video Samples Nikon, please!!

  • wublili

    So, what’s the latest rumors on D5 ?

    • hi

      the D5 and iphones will merge in one super unit

    • Who cares about the D5, the D6 is going to be even better!

      • wublili

        Dunno… D6’s 3D image sensor sounds fishy to me…

      • enesunkie

        At the rumored MSRP of $8000 it better be! 🙂

      • why D6 …its better to wait for D12 or D20

        • Amryl

          I’m waiting for the D40…..oh, wait…

  • It will only be 9pm out here on the west coast, plenty of time to read the news and comments 🙂

    • The West Coast is the best coast 🙂

      • No question that is the case in North America. In Australia, I like the east coast but since it’s down under I guess it counts as the west 🙂

      • wublili

        West coast of the Europe for the win 🙂

  • drob

    anyone know the best outlet for pre-orders and getting hands on the first shipments?

  • Ironchester

    We are ready to go here in Hong Kong!!

  • cowboycoffee

    i am also coming

  • Gordon

    I really hope Nikon surprises us with a dual announcement, that being the D4 and D800. The thought of waiting even more months for the D800 announcement depresses me.

    Come on Nikon, just go for the killer blow.

  • Cojaro

    Looks like my birthday gift will be a new 85/1.8 G 😀

  • Rich

    Yeah Bitches, it’s a commin

    Some psych-up music to get you going

  • Randy

    How quickly do the retailers open up the pre order lines after the announcement?



    • 2 hours after announcement Amazon will be taking pre-orders, Adorama will probably start tomorrow and B&H few days before the first shipment. I will post the links once I get them.

      • Randy

        Thanks so much!

  • lol, you just had to dig up that banner didn’t you?

  • typical canon troll

    also waiting anxiously so i can bust my brain to think of ways to say that my gear is better – although most of my shots are not in focused for some reason.

  • david distefano

    on the nikon usa website the refurbished d3 price is $4900 d3s, $4600, but on ebay the prices have dropped to $3300 for refurbished d3. interesting, i quess the market is saying there will be a large trade-in of d3’s for d4’s, and not a lot of money to pick up all the refurbished and used d3’s.

  • I’m gonna keep refreshing this page!!! 🙂

  • JonMcG

    Well, I’ve been following this website for a little over a year now and checking in almost every day.. It’s about time we finally get what we’ve pretty much all been waiting for this entire time, a Major body announcement.

    Sure I’ve been mostly interested in the D700 replacement and I know many others the d300s replacement but this is the big daddy of which all others will fall. I’m so pleased and it’s nice to know today what camera I’m going to own in the next 2-3 years 🙂

  • EnPassant

    As we already know how the D4 will look like, just don’t have the official specification yet it will be more interesting to see the AF-S 85/1.8 G lens. Is it that lens on the photo of the side of the D4? Because it is not any now available FX-lens what I can see.

    • EnPassant

      Taking a closer look I found it should be the AF-S 50/1.4 G lens mounted on the picture from the side of D4 in the French magazine. The photo from the front of D4 confusing matters is with a bigger 77 mm filter lens. Maybe AF-S 24-70/2.8 G.

  • I hope your server can take the extra load Admin ^^;

  • Bob

    Glad I live on the west coast … that’s 9 pm here.

  • Mark

    Given the plethora of leaks, are there any surprises left about the D4 to publish?


  • I hope the server can take the extra load Admin ^^;

  • Bob

    There is a Nikon Dealer here that is selling the D3s brand new for CA$4779.

  • Well, anything before official announcement is speculation.

    I cant wait for real stuff.

  • Vincent

    Hope NIKON will announce the Afs 85mm 1.8g.

  • Bob

    And there was another Nikon Dealer had the D3s on for Boxing Week at CA$4695 brand new.

  • Oh happy days!

    If I sell all my camera gear I could get a D4. Then I could wait a year to get a lens hehe.

  • I’m not too worried about the price of the D3 dropping, but do any of you think the price of the D3s, on the used market, will take a significant drop? Or do you think they’ll all be gobbled up before that’s even an option?


  • enesunkie

    Talk about deja vous. It seems like I was counting down till midnight for something important just this past weekend, but for some reason this is more exciting!

  • This time i will buy a Pro FF Body, my D700 will be jealous of my new cute baby!

    Come to the Papa!

  • Tic TOc TIc TOC tic TOC tic toc!

  • Zenflash

    There is a dealer here that is selling new D3s for CAD$4,550 + free 16Gb CF card. Very tempting because I don’t care so much about video.

    • Bob

      If I had the money I would have bought the D3s when it was on sale. I may still may pick one up at $4779 … but am waiting to see if there are any price drops after the D4 is officially announced. Nikon Canada has a sweet warranty deal …
      Note that Nikon Canada has the D3/D3X Extended Service Program. For a period of two years from the date of original purchase, this includes Unlimited Image Sensor Cleanings; Two Comprehensive Check-ups and Cleanings; Routine Adjustments; and Firmware Updates as needed. This program is offered at no cost to the customer, provided they are a Canadian resident and their D3/D3X camera was purchased from an Authorized Nikon Canada Dealer such as ourselves.
      Not only does this phenomenal offer apply to all new purchases from March 30, 2009 but it also grandfathers all new D3/D3X bodies purchased from an Authorized Nikon Canada Dealer since the launch of these models until two years after the date of original purchase, or until March 30, 2010, whichever period is greater.


  • Steve

    Amazing that the Wells Fargo release has the wrong date, and says nothing about details that Nikon always puts into press releases: image processors, lens mount, “FX”, capture rate in DX, scene recognition for exposure, etc…

    Not overly convincing

  • RondoX

    This is more exciting then the New Years count down! I can’t wait!!!

  • what is your first name admin ? hate calling somebody admin admin hehe

  • masi

    I hope a miracle happens and instead the D800 releases… 🙂 I can afford $3600 but not $6000 :(..

    • miracles do happens …in movies 😉

  • Kockwell is basically dissing Peter and Nikon Rumors on his site.

    “The leaked press release I saw is obviously fake; it’s not written professionally and was only posted on a phishing website, but it was enough to get the attention of all the waste-your-time rumors sites.”

    • he recommends D3100 and D5100 hehehe

      • Nope, Ken Rockwell is still a firm believer that the most you’ll ever need is a D40!

  • dongiorgio1959

    1451 in sydney only a few mins to go D4 .I just hope that nikon aust keeps the price on par with usa dollar .I hate when thay inflate the price 30%

    • I can’t even think how much it will cost in India .damn sure price will be around $7000 or something .
