Such a wonderful camera. I have always wanted to get this camera. It is sharp, tracks accurately, shoots a gazillion frames a second, I even used it at ISO 51200 with usable photos! What more can I ask for? More megapixels? I don't need more than 16 MP. The only faults are that I have faulty playback in my camera. Well, I paid under $1000, so I will take it! No rating given for anything related to flash, it doesn't have it. Don't need it, I have a Speedlight.

I've always been hesitant to get one of these Pro bodies but I now wish I had years ago. I'm going to be using it mostly for event photography and never realized what having 10FPS does when shooting people speaking at an event. I can actually capture just the right expression and it makes a world of difference. It also makes my old 80-200 f2.8 auto focus like it never has before. I guess my fear was the size/weight, but when using the f1.4 lenses and my 80-200, the camera feels much more ...

Hello, i bought a good D4 for a very good price with a 85mm f1.8G Lens. This Duo is almost perfect for everything. After attaching a WT-5 on the D4, it is a real multimedia-monster! As you can control this beast with a normal html window with your pc or phone, and also the great thing, that you can send your pictures and movies after recording or after reviewing on the camera. The WT-5 is so small, that i leave it almost all the time on the camera, and switch it on/off via menu and it works ...

In June 2014 I caved in and bought a d4 in Petaling Jaya to replace my D800 which had let me down again. Since I have taken nearly 25,000 shots with the d4, much more than with the d800 in two years. It is clearly a love affair, the d4 is extremely fast and versatile, the batteries never let you down. You can configure just about every button on the D4 so the only thing I had to get used to is the quirky position for the AF selection. I love the little toggle/joystick selectors and most of ...

except for the left focus problem, it's a good camera.

I have the d4 for about a year now, I mostly shoot sports and action, and I love this body more and more Every time I use it. Great ergonomics , just fits like a glove in my hand , lighter than the d3s I used to own,  high ISO amazing up to 12800 , and paired with my 400 2.8 vr  and 200 f 2 vr ii , I have no problem getting those shutter speeds in low light. The autofocus simply amazing, and the overall camera a joy to use. Nikon did a great job with this body.

Firstly I am a Nikon user only. I read a lot about the D4 before I purchased. It is like the I have gone light years ahead (pardon pun) .The low light capability of this camera has changed my entire outlook when I think of composing a picture. No worries about tripods just bang up the ISO, such freedom and ability to express without penalty. Some of the comparison shots between Canon v Nikon would give Canon the edge but if you look closer it look like Canon is using it's reduce noise ...

As good as the D3s  for low light photography but with a little extra resolution and improved AF in low light. I bought it for low light work, and apart from the D3s there isnt another DSLR that can match it. I just wish it was smaller, like the D700, I would sacrifice some FPS and movie mode for size, then it would be perfect.

Once the programming is made of pure pleasure awaits us with this beast. Nikon is a serious advance.

Nikon did well with this proprietary sensor - Color and tonal transition a definite step up. Should we have to pay the high price for 100% dependability? No. Is it 100% dependable? Yes! 16MB is fine for my work - Corporate event, portrait, travel and product/still life photography. Beautiful refined body and ergonomics. Problems: The separate XQD card and reader is a hinderance.
