    Undecided, will need to wait for detailed, professional reviews and some hands-on time. Might get it or go for a D4

    I shoot with Nikon kit too... the right tools for the job. Id still keep the a900 for those gorgeous skin tones at low ISO, but might get a d4 for the recent event shooting jobs I get where high ISO can help

    Might want to take a look at D3s. Their high ISO performance are actually not very far apart. In fact many prefer D3s over D4 in high ISO noise.

    Yeah but I do love the backlit buttons on the D4. Makes shooting in dark areas and changing settings a breeze.

    Say, I was thinking about purchasing some stuffs from them. Are they much more expensive? Cause I thought the prices were quite decent but do correct me if I am wrong.

    Example, the Sigma 30mm f1.4 is selling on DigitalRev for about +/- SGD 550.00 (USD 450.42) whereas on CS marketplace, users are selling between SGD 420.00 - SGD 480.00.
