An e-mail sent from Mr John Walsh, General Manager, Nikon UK at 18:00 (GMT) today, Friday, 23rd March 2012, to camera dealers in the UK and Eire, states that due to a "systems error" the RRP of the D4 is to be increased by £500.00, and the RRP of the D800 is to be increased by £200.00, with immediate effect. Apparently, the increase is to be applied to all back ordered cameras. No further explanation is offered.

AFAIK retailers can cancel orders if no money has yet been taken as the case in most pre-orders.
Don't know what happens if a deposit has been paid.
