As a D3s user I decided to skip the D4, suspecting Nikon would announce a refined version before too long.
The improvements are a little more noticeable for a photographer coming from a D3s. Things like backlit buttons, the relocated vertical AF-ON button and the improved vertical grip are welcome, but the most significant improvement for me is the focusing speed. I was impressed with the D3s, but the D4s is in a different league. It focuses better in conditions the D3s would sometimes struggle in. Also welcome is a fast ethernet port, which will allow me to tether the camera to a laptop.
