Nikon D4 vs its competitors: Should you upgrade or switch?

A few weeks ago, in response to the announcement of the Canon EOS 1D X, Nikon unveiled its new flagship camera, the Nikon D4, which replaces the D3s at the top of the Nikon DSLR line-up.

While we wait for Sony’s promised pro reflex (which will undoubtedly evolve in terms of higher definition), and since all the other competitors’ results are available, let’s first compare the Nikon D4 with the Nikon D800 (whose 36Mpix offering took its inspiration from the D4’s prosumer version). Then we’ll see how the D4 evolved by comparing it with its predecessor, the D3s, and then, finally, we’ll compare it with the Canon EOS 1D X, its true rival.
