Not bulky at all. You must have hands like a kid. My D4 fits perfect in my hands. All the controls are in the right place and big enough for my fingers. and no, it's not heavy. I carry it all day long with my 70-200 on the cam.

Played around with some files of my D4 and D800E. It's not bad and the RAWs look very good. That's all I need, cause I do the rest in Photoshop. Never used the U-Points anyway.

Clueless Wanderer: The amount of time and money and cutting edge technology involved in this camera is mind boggling.

I have but one question:

Has Nikon solved the problem of the 'growing' rubber grips that plague all nikon's?

D200 and a lens had a whole new set and my D700 is on its third 'trim' with the scissors and carpet tape to hold the grip on and my 24-70mm focussing rubber grip is looking like a life saver on a cocktail stick.

..Sort it out Nikon, its beyond a joke.

I use the D4 and D800E and the D3 and D3X before. I never had any growing rubber grips.

bossa: Kiddies with animals have been an ol' fav' for generations. These pictures are, predominantly, set pieces that are designed to appeal to sentimental parental instincts... ..cute isn't necessarily good art. The genre of the work is reminiscent of kitsch paintings from the late 19th to early 20th century and, from my perspective, is very boring in every way.

I see it the other way around.

mpgxsvcd: Serious Question. How many of you shoot Medium Format or would switch to Medium Format if the right camera body was produced?

Using Apple notebooks and workstations since 1999 and never looked back.

At the moment my workstation is an IMac with 3,4 GHz Intel Core I7 and 32 GB memory. Worth every penny.

LukeDuciel: Honestly, I do not really feel D3S and D4 is that better than D3.

D3 was a really good camera and Nikon has not delivered anything significant since then.

(D800 is rather a sensor miracle than the body itself. and for that, Sony is probably the one who owns the credit).

If my D4 drops and can't work with it on the set, Ill take my second one. As an NPS the cam will be replaced pretty fast. I don't worry much ;-)

thecouchguy: I wonder if they fixed the video (crappy compared to 1dx).

they fixed the crappy video a long time ago with the last firmware. since then video is very good.

Different feeling here. My D4 is a ten times better than my old D3.

JK5700: I have learned to wait for the 'S' version when buying hi-end Nikon cameras (D2xs, D3s, D300s). So having skipped the D4 as it did not offer that great an upgrade over the D3s, I am awaiting further details with great expectation.

So were the D3 owners thinking. Skipped the D3s and went directly to the D4, like me. :) Next stop D5.

iainlea: When i read this announcement i just get the feeling that Nikon is truly missing the big picture. Own a D4, D700, and D300 and of all the cameras Nikon hit the sweet spot with the D700 (and D3/D3S at that time). Ended up going with a D4 as the D800 just did not fit my studio/location work and workflow system as well.

I need a flexible "tool" that integrates with all my other tools todo my job as quickly and efficently as possible. Basically you capture light and convert it to binary data. That works OK. Give me 24mp, more AF points and cleaner high-ISO. All I need from the oldschool camera requirements.

What I NEED and will look closely at on my next purchase is CONNECTIVITY. I am not going to pay 5500 Euros for a body again unless you can give me multiple connectivity options AS STANDARD. Do not reinvent the wheel. Stuff a SoC running Android inside that does WLAN (802ac), Gbit port, NFC, GPS and maybe introduce a branded tablet with a set of useful apps.

Samsung are closing...

Sorry Scorpius1, but it is not true what you say. I own the D4 and D800E (both first batches) and it does NOT match the high ISO of the D4. Not at all. I will never go past 3200 with the D800E. I use it just in good light and studio controlled light. I use the D4 for almost everything.
I agree with some things iainlea mentioned.

As a D4 (and D800E) owner I don't see a reason to upgrade. The D4 is still a fantastic camera to me. I will wait for the D5.

On Nikon Df Review preview (1618 comments in total)

Owning the D800E and D4 for quite a while, I'm amazed to see this camera in the same IQ league, just with a beautiful body and the big plus of using old manual lenses in the right way. How fantastic is that? This camera slows me down, thinking more about the object I want to to photograph, like the way I use my old Rolleiflex. Manual focus of course. I can't imagine using AF on this camera. Outstanding IQ in bright and low light. High quality JPEG images with pleasant color at default settings. Good blend of traditional and contemporary controls and in a medium-priced range. That's what counts. Well done Nikon. I will get one as soon as possible.

aftab: Its not too uncommon to see negative, sarcastic or pretentious comments here in DPR. It is amusing to see the same for this news.

This site should be called "Grumpybook" because all grumpy, negative and unsatisfied men come here to meet!
With a few exceptions of course;-)
