I recently purchased a D4 from a fellow Nikonian. This weekend I took it out early in the morning at our local bird rookery. I had been using a D7000 for wildlife and birds. I wanted something that would give me more low light capabilities.

Well, I was like mucho impressed with the D4. I set it to auto ISO with a max of 6400. The 6400 ISO shots were at good as the 1600 ISO shots I use to take with the D7000. That is two stops better. Amazing.

The same with autofocus. Birds in flight has just become easy. Coupled with the new Nikon 80-400 VR lens, the D4 just locked on almost like magic. I only had a couple of cases where small branches in between the camera and subject cause autofocus errors. That was easy to get around. I just moved myself or manually focused.
