Nikon has announced a 10 percent price rise in the UK on its forthcoming D4, D800, and D800E cameras, with the originally published (and now retracted) MSRPs being blamed on a "local internal systems error." Prospective British buyers can now expect to pay a hefty £5,289.99 for the D4, £2,599.99 for the D800, and £2,899.99 for the D800E. Nikon also says that the Irish pricing is similarly affected, but hasn't given a figure in Euros. While $300 might seem a steep difference between the D800 and D800E, £300 feels even sharper.
It's been a long wait for Nikon's newest full-frame cameras, however the company does give one piece of good news for those who have been holding patiently. Customers who have pre-ordered the camera at the original price shouldn't be affected by the hike — Nikon says that it will honor the original prices to retailers on any pre-orders placed prior to March 24th.
