Improved AF (claimed anyway) - through improved algorithms - sounds like a firmware update to me
AF at 11 FPS - the old was 10FPS with AF
New AF group mode
High ISO up to 409600 ... that's insane and one stop better than the D4

Not sure it's worth a "S" model ... where the D4X?

It seems as if DSLR's are still evolving, I wonder if, and when, they will offer a medium format! I won't sell the house buying one, but, it seems as if that could be a cool build! I would like to see Nikon 6X6 at a decent price, hell, a price comparable to the D800!

Yea, the high ISO bump by one stop and 11FPS with AF active. The D4 was 10 FPS with AF active or 11 with AF locked.

Most digital medium-format cameras are DSLRs...

I guess I flopped my wording, but, what I meant to state was that, I want an affordable, yet killer, medium format camera, in the 6X6 square format, to fill in the blank left by selling my Rollei 6008 pro., lol!

Does this make a difference for you to upgrade?

"The D4S can shoot 11 frames per second at full-resolution. Nikon paints this as an improvement, even though the D4 could shoot 11 fps as well. The difference is that the D4S has 30-percent more processing power than the D4, enabling the camera to use autofocus and autoexposure on each of those 11 frames. The camera can shoot a hefty 200 full-size JPEG frames before the buffer is full."

Well, that's a 'dream' camera and not related to the D4s at all- but as an exercise, note that a 6x6 sensor would be a one per wafer thing, with good wafers in the teens at best; likely something only that megacorps or governments could afford .

409600! Are we now shooting bats in a cave? I want to see the noise patterns in those shots! Any takers on film quality at that ISO?

i don't know if this excites the existing d4 owners, i am looking at it, selling my d4 and getting one of these puts me back about 2~2.5k and not much to show for it.

Lame! I ask every single D4 owner.... 'Is your D4 not capable of handling any shooting situation you throw at it?'

IMO anyone who upgrades from the D4 to the D4s is wasting money. Of course, if money was no concern then sure I'd get one just because, but I see no decent reason based on feature set to justify an upgrade.

ISO of 409k. Really? Who would honestly shoot at that and for what purpose? I ask current D4 owners... 'Who currently shoots at max ISO on their D4 and for what reason? Are the images useable?'
SRaw. A nice little feature but the files of a D4 are only 16mpix and about 40mb per Raw file. An SRaw on the D800s, now that would make sense, but on the D4s it's pointless IMO. I've never heard any D4 owner complain about their 16mpix files. To the contrary I've only heard people talk about having more mpix.

Nikon, WHAT were you thinking?

Why are these forums so negative? Don't forget that the D3s looked like a small bump at the time too and it turned out to be one of the best dslr's ever made.

I never owned a D3 or D3s so can't draw a parallel, but my point is that the D4 is so phenomenal and will already fulfil any shooting situation any photographer can throw at it. How will an 8mpix file or ISO 409k help?
The only feature benefit on the D4s as far as I can see is the improved AF, processor and maybe battery life. But I ask again, does the D4 not deliver in these areas? Of course it does.
