Do you still think this is true? I received the d800 but went in today and bought the D4- instantly felt comfortable w/it but now need to decide what to do w/ my d800? D o I sell the D800- or is it worth keeping for the added detail capability ect.

The D4 will not have 2 Compact Flash Slots - just 1... the other card slot is for the brand new XQD type...

Just waiting for delivery, the D800 is no match for this wonderful camera

Thanks for catching that, we'll have that updated tomorrow, you're right, the D4 does include a self cleaning sensor.

According to the D4 specifications on the Nikon website, the D4 does include a self cleaning sensor. Snapsort has it listed as not having this functionality.
