Alright, the rumor sites are giving this another shot.

Adorama Momentarily Lists the Nikon D4s, Sensor Specs Not in Line with Rumors

d4ssochi_1

Well, February 11th came and went without so much as a peep about the D4s. It seems that invitation for a special Nikon event didn’t have to do with the new flagship after all.

Nikon already revealed that the D4s is in the works — the company even had one on display in a ‘so-close-and-yet-so-far’ glass case at CES — but so far, we’ve had very little info about the camera itself.
