Upgraded to Nikon D4Camera w Nikkor 80 to 400 mm Lens Tried to go less camera after using the D3 and associated Nikkor lenses. Process too difficult. So I Upgraded to Nikon D4Camera w Nikkor 80 to 400 mm Lens. I'm happily in the saddle once again. I cover sports action for the local college and some high schools. I have all the range I need for football, baseball, golf (shoot after ball is struck), basketball (use no flash) and tennis. I prefer the zoom over multiple lenses to obtain the cover I need. Convenience wins over multiple lenses requiring lens changing as you go. This described combination consistently has produced outstanding images for daily print media. Richard. February 14, 2014
Ergonomics rock! Just got the D4 body yesterday and have been busy shooting with D3. The D4 feels real natural in my hands as did the D3 did after F-100. Only complaint: How do I load Provia 100F into this thing? January 22, 2014
The summum I do not know what DSLR offer little more, AAA D4. November 30, 2013
D4 is Fantastic! I use the D4 to compliment my Leica setup which I reserve for static subjects. The D4 is an unbelievably awesome machine with unprecedented focus tracking and clean noise free images to high iso's. I shoot everything in RAW, make sure I capture everything correct in camera and convert to DNG upon import to Lightroom. The files are fantastic right out of camera. Very happy with the results of this body. The 85 f/1.4G, 200 f/2G II and the 70-200 f/2.8G II are what I have shot with this body so far all with very impressive results. The bokeh of the 85 and 200 are very pleasing and appreciated in my style of photography. June 11, 2013
Video is amazing This camera is just phenomenal. Video is made easy now with separate headphone and boom jacks. Well done Nikon, well done. June 7, 2013

Answer: 
D3s was ranked 1st in low light performance by DxO. The 2012 sensor tech used in the D4 is cutting edge by means of maximizing sensor's microlens light transmission and microlens shape in order to gather and focus all the available light on the CMOS area which has also been improved over the D3s. Low light performance is not only about ISO, it's about how much DR would be achieved in that settling, how much color sensitive it would be etc. Nikon has it's own standards in determining how high it will rate the normal sensitivity. The photograph taken with ISO 12800 can be printed large and nobody will notice it is taken at that setting, it will look just the same as it would be taken with ISO 100. Nikon gives the indicated quality at 16MP, that's D3s+4MP, usable for unseen until now detail at all normal sensitivities, and fair results at ISO52k and 102k (Hi - modes), which by my opinion give charm or charisma of a photograph (little bit of noise). By comparison one would achieve excellent poster sized detailed results photographing the milky way at ISO8000 f/4 14mm, 30sec. With the D3s we had this ability, but now we have lots of detail too and even more improved high ISO, the D4 is a marvel, the crown of the camera world.

Answer: 
The question is not how high it gets, but how clean from noise it will be.
If , for example, the 6,400 ISO on the D4 will be as clean as 800 ISO on the D3s - would be awesome!

Answer: 
There is a trade off when you add mega pixels. The individual pixel size shrinks therefore decreases the light gathering ability of each pixel. If Nikon advertise a higher native ISO capability, you would expect the performance at that ISO to be great. If ISO is important to you, you are good with what you have. The D4 was advertised as a press and sport camera, not light up the night like the D3s.

Answer: 
Since the introduction of the D3 a lot has happened in the electronics field, especially with processors and memory. Specialist processors have doubled in performance while the size of the die (each transistor) has reduced by half. Smaller transistors lead to higher speed and less power usage.

The magnets and circuits used to create the motors have much more torque and can operate a lower voltages.

Typically Japenses, design a battery that supplies the right amount of power at the right time.

The only way to correctly assess the performance is to use them in side be side under the same conditions.

Try comparing a torch with a tungsten bulb with one with an LED - the powr usage ratios are so very different - I would reckon the same applies between the D3 and D4 - 4 years is a very long time in electronics.

Answer: 
The engineering of the battery is such that the D4 will last longer on sustained bursts with it's new battery than if the battery from the D3s was used. The way the test is run to determine the number of shots, does not take advantage of the discharge profile of this particular battery. The test is ran in a method as to where a shot is taken, there is a pause, then another shot is taken. The engineers designed the D4 battery to better accommodate people taking advantage of the high FPS burst shooting. The battery from the D3s would not be able to power the high burst rate and data transfer rates for very long, thus, a new design :-)

Answer: 
There are plenty of reviews online that will help you learn from others experience. Video on the D4 has not been getting good reviews... actually video on any dslr has its challenges. If you were to believe the reviews then video from the Nikon D800 is sharper than the D4 & that camera is half the price.

Answer: 
if you're a professional and you need to be out shooting photos and video day in and day out, the D4 is the camera you're looking for. primarily because it's built for the kind of punishment that a working photographer is likely to dish out. everything from the high frames-per-second rate to the extremely long-lasting shutter mechanism, high-capacity battery and built-in web interface is geared to high-volume production. the D4 is nikon's top-of-the-line camera, and everything about it is first class.

Answer: 
I am a loyal Nikon Lover, so yes the extra money is worth it...to me...
I would say the best you can do is look at specs for both cameras and then decide the pros and cons of each camera and decide which will better suit you...and your needs...
Myself , I would never switch over brands because of all the money invested in lenses n such, and , to be honest , most real world photographers will not see the pros and cons in any model when it comes down to it... I have never read any spec on a Canon in 15 years or so that would make me change to that brand ...
I have an older D2X, Nikons Flagship Model in 2005-2006, and the difference in this camera and a D4 is like night and day for the most part... But its not like two comparable models of different brands ever seem to be so far apart that i would switch...only my personal opinion
Really it’s up to you and your needs , and if no investment in other photography equipment.
Normally if im torn between two manufacturers of something, reviews, magazine articles and user reviews are pretty helpful...
Hope this helps some...

Answer: 
Unless the sensor is the same design, one can't say with 100% assurance that "more pixels = more noise". One only has to look at the noise performance between the D3 and D3s - same size sensor, same MP but the D3s wins the battle hands down.

This is (a) a new sensor design with (b) smaller photosites than the D3s. We'll have to wait and see.

Answer: 
Take a look at this article: http://www.nikonusa.com/Learn-And-E...
It explains the various ways you can shoot time lapse with the D4. There is a built-in interval timer that allows you to shoot time release like you have in the past, and also a Time Release Movie Mode that processes the time release shots into a finished movie file in-camera.

Supposedly there's been a delay? Nikon France Facebook page notes a March 15th release date. Is there a day for the US yet?

Answer: 
I was in our local dealer today (March 15, 2012) near Detroit, MI and overheard him calling a customer to say that their D4 was in.

Answer: 
The new NIKON D4 was announced a few weeks back and it’s usually available after 30 to 45 days after this. You may want to check with your local dealer or keep visiting our Nikon store.
