    Easy... go to: Nikon D800 Hands-on Preview: Digital Photography Review

    Select for comparison, the Pentax 645D (MF), the D4, and say the EOS 1D4.

    Select RAW and say ISO 6400 or higher. Then move the rectangle on the picture to say the top half (where it says "Thursday") of the blue clock on the bottom right corner, and see for yourself.

    (Remember to do so on a good display. My laptop, for example, is bad in showing up the details.)

    Silly me... MF don't go to high ISOs. So the Pentax 645D max out at ISO 1600.

    Another interesting point of comparison: Leica M9.

    Nikon has to pay off the Tsunami / and flood Damage somehow.

If your argument is get a D4 for its video capability, then your just making an excuse to buy a D4. Because I believe you can get your hands on a much better dedicated HD Cam.
    Totally agree.... for me' I'l always wait for the second "reincarnation" or the Nikon D4S..... prob announced SEPT 2013 or thereabouts. ( D3 > D3S the diff was huge )

    Wait for all the pro tweaks and firmware updates - happy days for me. Good things come to those who wait

    Or wait for the D9s. Sure very good compared to the D4.

    The ergonomics improved.

    With d3s, u nid a really long thumb if u're shootin in portrait mode, to change the point of focus.

    True, but for me now, I'd get it for the Illuminated buttons alone... very cool and useful for me !! That said DXO Mark rates the D3S Good alongside of the D4, no real gains here for me.

    D4 price is out! SRP is a whopping S$9799. I wonder how they work out the exchange rate? even at USD1 to SGD1.26 plus GST, it should only be S$8,089. This is really ridiculous!

    HK is only HKD52,800 at HKD1 to SGD0.1648, it is only SGD8,701.

    Law of economics: you charge what your customers are willing to pay, not what the product's cost of manufacture.

    Corollary (a.k.a. "Divide and conquer"): you charge what your local customers can be made to pay (throw in some goodies like local warranty), not what others far away are paying.

    This is called price discrimination, I believe.

    I just made up my mind...

    as a gear head myself...I have concluded that I won't be purchasing D4 (poisonous and worth it) but I'm keeping my what ever gear I have...save the 10k for the rainy days. :-)
