Is the D4 now a jack of all trades, but master of too few? Now I'm being needlessly critical for sure.
C$6299 according to Nikon Canada. C$250 (adjusted) more than the U.S. price of US$5999. We are agog. C$1100 more than a D3s (C$5199).
It looks like the D4 actually has a combination of still shooting speed and enhanced hi-def video shooting features and functions, and networking/connectivity features that both staff and independent photographers shooting major sports events (especially the upcoming 2012 Olympics in London) will absolutely love. There's no other camera on the market now (or scheduled to be on the market before the Olympics) which offers such a productively complete package for professional use at the Olympics.
The missing AE-L/AF-L button is making me curious enough to be genuinely eager to get my mitts on the test unit at Vistek (hopefully shortly after CES). I've already made my demanding phone call.
