The D4s’s aut­o­fo­cus feels much more re­li­able than the D4’s, es­pe­cially on pe­riph­eral AF points. With the D4 I of­ten use the fo­cu­sand-re­com­pose method be­cause the AF points near the edges are un­re­li­able (or so I find with my model, at least!). I also no­ticed it fo­cus­ing more quickly. The D4s feels more com­fort­able in the hand, very easy to grip, a no­tice­able er­gonomic im­prove­ment, and the joy­stick has def­i­nitely been im­proved – it feels firmer and more ac­cu­rate. Colours seemed bet­ter than on my D4, though I was shoot­ing in nat­u­ral light – I would like to see how the D4s re­acts to an ugly bulb light in a church, but the im­ages were pretty neat in terms of skin tones.

Aga loves the im­proved fo­cus on the D4s, but will prob­a­bly stick with her ex­ist­ing D4 for now
