Nikon D4 wire report leaks, confirming 16.2MP full-frame DSLR for $6,000 in February

28

We're still not completely sure what Nikon's D4 will look like, but we can tell you its specs: it seems a wire report has been inadvertently published confirming that the hotly-anticipated DSLR will arrive in February, bringing a full-frame 16.2 megapixel sensor with a 100-102,400 native ISO range for $6,000.

Many major specs detailed in the International Press Telecommunications Council report were already leaked, including the camera's 51-point AF system (with 9 cross-type points), 50-204,800 expanded ISO range, ethernet jack and Compact Flash XQD memory card slot, but we're now learning that the camera will have 100 percent coverage in its full pentaprism optical viewfinder, and do contrast-detect autofocus and smoothly adjust aperture while recording 1080p30, 1080p24 and 720p60 HD video. According to the report, the max continuous shooting speed will actually be 10fps, not the 11fps rumored, but the D4 will do face detection, has a 91,000-pixel RGB metering sensor, and will feature illuminated function keys and a dedicated video recording button. Nikon's also introducing a new AF-S 85mm f/1.8G FX format lens, with an MSRP of around $500. The wire report's dated January 10th, so expect an official announcement from Nikon around then. We've also reached out to Nikon for comment and will let you know what we hear.
