Nikon announced the Nikon 810, its D800 and D800e replacement earlier today. Embedded with an EXPEED 4 image processor and a 36MP sensor with no optical low-pass filter, this looks like a really cool machine for underwater. Not to mentioned its ability to lower its ISO setting to ISO 64 where brilliant noise free images is expected.
Here’s one of the first D810 underwater images taken with 100% cropped.
Image was taken with Ai AF Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D as 14-bit RAW then converted to and resize to JPEG. 100% cropped also included.
Since the Nikon D4 is out, if you are into 2nd hand market, here’s the current price which you may want to reference from when bargaining. Prices are consolidated from the WTS sell page at masterchong.com.

I am impressed with the level of seriousness that Nikon had decided to showcase their most up to date shooting machine the Nikon D4s.
While reading the full of text press release and product specification of this full metal machine allow you to get the level of details you will need, this video provides you another interesting view of this machine. This video was shot in Bhutan
What I like about the Nikon D4s:
1. ISO ranges from the standard 100-25,600 and can be expanded up to 409,600. This is incredible for those who enjoy shooting with natural lights only.
2. Faster auto-focus with multiple intelligence group AF points activated during its 11fps shooting interval.
3. Compact Flash, I can still use those leftover from my D2x!
Nikon released earlier that they are going to continue to service your D600 even if it is already out of warranty period. They may replace a D600 or equivalent model ( we are looking at D610) if the issue is persistent after a few services.
