There is no 4k because the Fujitsu Milbeaut image processors didn't support it.

You would need to wait for the 8th generation processor for that or if Nikon decides to switch their processor manufacturer to someone that has 4k support.

If you compare the specs of the new Panasonic GH4 and the Nikon D4s it would seem that the D4s has the technical capability to do 4k and when you also consider the XQD memory card, for sure the ability to store the larger data stream.

So why not? That would have been an interesting and for many with a strong interest in video, a compelling difference.

Perhaps this will be delivered via a firmware upgrade in the future.
