The Nikon D4 is the remarkable flagship professional DSLR for the company's line, with high-speed shooting, durable construction, and the ability to utilize the new XQD memory card type. The Nikon D4 also features a new 91k pixel RGB metering sensor, 51-point autofocus system, and an ISO range that tops out at an ridiculous 204,800. The D4 doesn't have the high resolution of the D800, but it does feature a full frame FX 16.2-megapixel image sensor. With such high end components and a level of control designed to benefit professional news and sports photographers, there's not much surprise that the D4 comes with a hefty price tag. If $6000 body-only sounds like something that might be in your budget, then read on for our full breakdown of the D4.
