The D4s is a beau­ti­ful beast. The small im­prove­ments are prob­a­bly the best for how I shoot; lit­tle things like the change in place­ment of the ver­ti­cal AF-ON but­ton make so much sense and just make life eas­ier. The dy­namic range seems to have im­proved, too. I have far fewer blown high­lights, even shoot­ing in a rel­a­tively ex­treme light­ing en­vi­ron­ment such as a live gig.

The colour depth also seemed to be a great im­prove­ment over the pho­tos I shot at the same gig with my D3s – im­ages were much more vi­brant and, again, fewer blown high­lights in the red and blue ar­eas, which are the usual vic­tims on con­cert pho­tog­ra­phy!

I didn’t get to test the ridicu­lous pos­si­ble ISO lev­els as it was a well-lit gig, but at ISO1600 the im­age was still smooth and noise-free.
