First deliveries of Nikon D4 delayed until mid-March

Initial shipments of the Nikon D4 to retailers have been pushed into next month.

The pro digital SLR had originally been slated for worldwide release beginning late next week. Earlier today, however, Nikon USA told us - through their PR firm - that a "minor production delay" means that dealers should now expect to start taking delivery of the company's new flagship closer to the middle of March.

While the information given was specific to the U.S. market, it's safe to assume that D4 shipments have been similarly delayed in all other countries and regions globally.

Announced in January, the D4 features a 16.16 million image pixel full-frame CMOS image sensor, 10fps top shooting rate (or 11fps with restrictions), a standard ISO range of 100-12,800 (and an extended range of 50-204,800), a revised 51-point AF system capable of autofocusing with f/8 lenses, all-new 91,000-pixel RGB ambient/flash metering sensor, twin memory card slots (CompactFlash and the emerging XQD format), EXPEED 3 image processing, 1080p video capture with audio monitoring and optional uncompressed video output through the HDMI port, built-in Ethernet, a new EN-EL18 battery, in-camera HDR and timelapse creation, all in a dust and weather sealed magnesium alloy body.
