If it does indeed get announced around noon, local time here in Japan, I'll be able to try both D4 and D800 at the C&P show in Yokohama on the 9th of February. I'll bring my D700 just to compare the shots at ISO 3200 and 6400. Video might be an interesting item also.
I read the Chasseur d'image information . Basicly this well known photo magazine is not very happy with the Nikon refusal to give out info about the new D800. The prese ha e been called in on the 7th where details will be' announced officially. So they are informing the public that the D800, 2 different type one without a anti alias filter, will have the specs as they announced back in october.
Sensor 24 x 36. 36 mpx 4fps 14 bit and 6fps with pack Full hd 1080p video Hdmi. And. Headphone jack 100% screen Use of both CF and SD cards Wifi - wt4 USB 3 Expeed 3 Professore Meter 91,000 points ISO 100 to 6400
That 6fps with grip stat could be a VERY important one if it involves all 36mp (i.e the full FX frame). 6fps is getting well fast enough that a camera can be pressed into service for sports and wildlife, not just studio and landscape. Making it a much more versatile "all arounder"' style camera if it can do it. I am excited to see the upcoming official announcement to see full verified details!
