Who's planning to buy the D4? Tell us your primary reason?
Feb 20, 2012

I currently have pre-orders for the D4 and D800 but will only buy one. Trying to decide. My shooting is landscape, wildlife, portraits. I don't have a need for blistering speed, but love the low light low specs of D4, and like the thought the speed is there if I ever wanted to capture faster action such as motor sports and air shows. I also like the 36mp the D800 offers but have been told I should be able to get great 30x40 prints with the D4. If I buy the D800, I would buy the battery grip, extra battery thus adding to the lower cost of the D800 relative to the D4. I am changing over from Canon so I will also be investing in new Nikon glass. I would love to hear if anyone else is having a similar challenge making this decision.
