D4s has smaller RAW buffer than D4??
Mar 25, 2014

Just tested my new D4s next to the old D4 that a friend is buying.  Interestingly, with identical settings (all fps robbing items such as NR, ADL, vignette control and lens auto distortion correction set to OFF), the D4 will fire off ~87 14 bit lossless compressed RAW files, but the D4s will only fire off ~61!  This is using the 168MB/s Sony S series XQD card.  Anyone else notice this?  A little disappointing to take a step back in performance (not that I'd normally fire an 87 frame burst, but still?)

Also, they claim an improvement in that the D4s can shoot 200 large fine JPEG's and it does do this - but the D4 does it too - just tested that (even though the manual says it will only do 170).
