    From what I see so far from the spec sheets etc, this D4 isn't really ground breaking at all.. As compared to D3s, this D4 isn't much to wow about... If anyone wants to buy a pro level Nikon body, it's a good time to get the D3s once the price starts to drop with D4's launch... Those at the D4 launch event can save their time and go back sleep alrdy..

    if you mount a heavy lens then it will become heavy
    i tried the D4 with the new 85mm f1.8 and 24-70mm f2.8
    with 24-70 is heavy, with 85 is light

    the new technology is the usability tweaks

    eg. a simple tweak is the illuminated buttons
    buffer big enough to store 100 raw images

    But these are the stuffs are things that would not make me pop usd 6k to buy it or make me upgrade from the D3s, even the video mode is so so... In general, a camera nothing much to shout abt, or rather no major upgrade from D3s.

    The only thing useful thing for stock photographer is the megapixels.. Upgrade to 16 from 10 megapixels.. But on the other hand, there's already 24mp D3x available...

    you are fortunate to already have a D3S, so it would not be that big a difference to you.
