Nikon D4: $6,000, Nikkor AF-S 85mm f/1.8G: $500


The latest Nikon D4 specs (original post):
  • Nikon D4 will have substantially lighter body
  • Available in February
  • Suggested retail price: $6,000
  • The ISO range is listed again as 100 to 102,400, expandable to 50 to 204,800. Those were the original D4 specs I published back in December but then I had to correct them. I guess I was wrong in my correction.
  • 91,000-pixel RGB metering sensor
  • Face detection/recognition
  • 100% viewfinder coverage (obviously)
  • Illuminated function buttons
  • Dedicated video button
  • Includes H.264 B frame compression
  • Contrast detect AF in movie recording
  • Low-pass filter for video recording
  • Smooth aperture feature for video recording
  • Nikon D4 is not produced in Thailand
The price of the new Nikkor AF-S 85mm f/1.8G lens will be $500.

As expected, the Nikon D800 will not be announced now since it was not mentioned in the article.

I'm glad to hear the iso range is back to what we originally saw. The lower weight should be fantastic! I was hoping for a $5,500 price tag but $6k seems ok.

I think my wife will absolutely love the fact that the weight may be going down. She loves her D3s, but it's difficult to hold for long periods of time.

Any confirmation on the resolution for the D4? Still in the 16mpx range?

What about the D800? No news?
