Fellow D4 owners, i need your advise. I rdered the D4, being unaware of the green screen and focusing issues reported on the internet. I am upgrading from the D3. Are those "allegations" true? And if so, how bad are them? I just would like to spend 6 grand for a camera with such problems. Thanks
I have neither of these problems with my D4. I have SN 2022xxx delivered May 18.

Thank you for your information. I got in touch with Mike Hagen today, and he said that, if it happens, it is a very small problem and that the LCD is better calibrated than previous cameras. I am confident then that it is going to be good camera. Thanks for your reply.
I'm already at 14,000+ images, am very pleased, if my LCD is green my eyes must be filtering it out as it looks fine, and it focuses well (though I did need to fine tune my lenses, but I've done that on every camera).
Heck of a camera. Buy it and you'll spend less time reading the internet.
>Dumb Question?? How do you fine tune your lenses to a >camera?
The feature is called, AF Fine Tune and it appears on page 359 of D4 User Manual. It is accessible from Setup menu on the body (2nd last option).
Essentially, you can fine tune the focus point for upto 20 lenses you use with that body. So, if you know that a particular lens, say 70-200mm was back focusing, you can adjust focus point forward to compensate. Once it is set, your camera remembers that setting for your future use.
