From what I've read, the only downside of the new Nikon D4 compared to the Nikon D3s is the amount of shoots can be taken with a full charge of battery. Nikon D3s can take up to 4,200 shots (CIPA) while Nikon D4 can only take 2,600 (CIPA).

The price tag for Nikon D4 estimated at above RM18,000. Hopefully it will be cheaper and price drop for Nikon D3s. I can't wait to try this mean machine at the Nikon Center in Berjaya Times Square in future. Till then... Happy Shooting! :D
