This is what the new Nikon D4 looks like when stripped down to its rugged magnesium alloy frame.

    I’m fully expecting that thing to say, “Sarah Connor??” or “I’ll be back…”

    Canon also uses Magnesium Allot frames…

    So your argument is invalid.

    I want mine to look just like this :), no black, no coating…it would burn my fingers in the summer!

    “Sarah Connor, I would like to take your picture.  Would you please try this outfit on?” :)

    So, if someone wants to steal it you could essentially just clobber him to death. :D

    and the glare off of it would wreck your shots

    The Pentax K-5 was doing this over a year ago for less than a 1/3 of the price of the D4. http://www.pentax.jp/english/products/k-5/image/fea_5_01.jpg

    Oh yeah we’re waiting and waiting on when the newest Pentax will come out. Not just about the body, but the name. Pardon the cynicism, but it doesn’t matter much to the post.

    a lot of non *pro* bodies are full metal like the d4.. the d300, d7000, d700, 7d, 5d, etc.. its nothing new, its just cool to look at. 

    Nikon just did a good job of displaying it after a nice buffing. 

  • Mario Liedtke

    Wow! Please don’t paint it! Leave it as it is!

  • Eddie

    and theK7 K20 k10, hell all the way back to the *istds , ist d.
    and before that the mz-s , nothing new
    as mentioned many cameras have the mag alloy body. what does vary is how much of the body is mag alloy. the Pentax’s and the high end canon and nikon all have this level. cameras like the D700 D7 have a lower amount and only a partially mag alloy body – gotta give you a reason to buy up :)

    according to NPS the “nikon d700 is a pro body”
    also the nikon f5 has same body essentially

  • Krijsh

    Mine’s more metaly than yours…
