As I have been posting, I have pressed the D4 into Birding service for shooting in the ISO 1400-2500 range and it seems to be performing quite well. This whole ISO 1000-3200 range is extremely useful for birding as much of it occurs at low light and I need shutter speed to stop motion. And the D4 FPS, un-fillable buffer, and impeccable autofocus are all very helpful for birding too.

These Pileated Woodpecker (Papa and Baby via tripod) are ISO 2500, 2200, 2200, 2200, 1600, and 2500 (Chipmunk handheld) respectively.

Best regards, SteveK
