Nikon D4 Discontinued Just in Time for D4s Announcement February 11th

d4discontinued

The time is almost here for Nikon fans. Nikon Rumors is reporting that as of yesterday, the D4 has officially been discontinued and is out of stock or back-ordered at all the major online retailers. This, of course, comes just in time for the D4s launch.

And speaking of the D4s launch, we’re expecting that to happen on February 11th, assuming this leaked invitation to a “special Nikon event” in Prague on that date is legit. That would put the release just two days before the start of CP+, and right on schedule where rumored predictions are concerned.

For more info on what the differences between the D4 and D4s may be, check out our previous rumor coverage here.

    Boy, come on lets do it now…I am ready.

  • Mack

    I want to hear Nikon announce that they are going to start honoring their warranties.

  • James

    I think it’s weird how some lines of cameras get discontinued before their replacement is even announced.

  • Peter “Pots”

    I kind of think that this is a Japanese thing. I do wonder if all the D4’s that are in the stores got sold.

  • xtraclick

    Agree, but it least it warns the product is about to be replaced in case your in process of getting one.

  • PSAGuy

    Cannot wait. I saw a Sochi image at 10,000 iso and it was unbelievable !! I’ll be in line to grab one of these.

  • No-one important

    The only people for whom this is a surprise are those who don’t but D3/D4 level gear. Yes, Nikon tweaks their PJ cameras every two years. Film at eleven.

    We were told Friday at the [redacted], my wire service to prepare to turn in any remaining D3 cameras that are still out, and that they will start next week for us to submit D3s disposition requests for our first badge. I assume we are getting new Nikons in soon.

    I’ve been waiting for One since December, the only ones that seem to be available are Grey market, and no way am I doing that. So stock appears to be small to non-existent.
