Mongo is currently in Hanoi doing the tour of the zoos of course. Not 2 hours ago he ran into a fellow shooting with a new D4 (with 24-70mm f2.8). Had a chat with him briefly. He appeared to be Spanish. He told Mongo it was an awesome combination and indeed, it looked a hefty piece of kit.
So, for those who would doubt, the D4 is a live and well and soon to be shooting in a town near you. Mongo should have taken a shot of this great camera but was too busy salivating .
Mongo is traveling and will not be able to keep up with any comments to this thread. It was posted in the interest of good equipment (although Mongo will only be purchasing a D800 when the time comes).
Cheers to all
