The Nikon D4S is an evolutionary rather than revolutionary continuation of the earlier D4 model. But that's not to take anything away from it: as full-frame professional cameras go this is as good as they come. Faster burst shooting, a bump...

When a company takes an existing model name and simply adds a letter—as Nikon has done in the past with cameras like the D1, D2, D3, D40, and D300—it's best to not expect drastic changes. As we've seen in our review of the D4S, that wisdom is once again...

The Nikon D4s is simply a mid-model refresh of the of 2012. The D4S is a minor update, as Nikon has been doing since at least the 1980s when the N8008 became the N8008s. The D4S is even less significant than other S models...
