Nikon's D4 has been the top-tier DSLR model for the thriving company ever since its debut back in 2012. A recent announcement has confirmed the upcoming release of the Nikon D4S which follows the footsteps of the Nikon D3 (released in 2007) and the D3S (released in 2009).
The D4S has been rumored and teased online although it was still up in the air as to whether the model would ever see the light of day. Nikon officially confirmed the new model yesterday morning and have released a bunch of press shots which you can see embedded below.
