The Nikon D4 was announced today January 5th, 2012 and is scheduled to be available for purchase sometime in February 2012. However you can pre-order online now.
You know what this means, yup all the Nikon pro’s and “sort of” pros will be looking to pre-order them as soon as possible. With a price tag of $6000 for the body only, it’s not exactly a camera you purchase as a birthday gift. In some countries this baby costs more than a car!
I’ll be placing the links where you can pre-order them below. As soon as they go live, the links will work.
- Amazon – You can sign up for an email alert when its available.*
- Adorama – Taking pre-orders NOW!
- B&H – Now taking pre-orders.
- J&R – Taking pre-orders
* Note that I would still check Amazon frequently since there may be a small delay from when you receive the email and when they start taking orders again. (Thanks to a reader for the latest update).
Plus you can also pre-order the new Nikon 85mm f/1.8G AF-S NIKKOR Lens too.
Whether this new camera is in your ballpark or not, it seems to be what all the Nikon fans will be looking up to.
