In case you haven't heard, Nikon UK has just raised the prices on the D800 (undeniably the greatest camera in the world) and D4 by about $400 and $1,000, respectively. The reason for the jump in cost: an “unfortunate mistake” wherein the wrong prices were published in the initial press releases (and the fact that no one managed to notice the error for two months!). The good news: for anyone who ordered before the price hike, the original price will still be honored. For all my American readers, if you want either camera, just go preorder one now before Nikon USA decides to get in on the act and screw us over (maybe), too.
