Nikon D4 is here...

Looks like they've made quite a few changes and it seems pretty impressive. At $6000, it better be impressive. Judge for yourself:

The D4 announcement from Nikon

The new stuff:

  • New Nikon FX-format CMOS image sensor
  • New EXPEED 3 image-processing engine with superior, high-speed processing capabilities
  • 91K-pixel RGB sensor for the more accurate Advanced Scene Recognition System
  • Faster and more accurate AF with 51 focus points
  • Multi-area Mode Full HD D-movie with three image area options
My guess is that in the next couple of months we'll see the D800 roll out with all of these advances in a smaller more affordable body. That's really what I'm looking for. The reason I bought a D700 over a D3 was the removable grip. Sometimes smaller and lighter is better.
