Nikon bumps up the price of the D800 and D4 in Ireland and UK

Nikon: D800 and D4 price change not market-led (update) news - Amateur Photographer - news, camera reviews, lens reviews, camera equipment guides, photography courses, competitions, photography forums

Blaming an 'internal systems error', Nikon UK confirmed in a statement that the D800 will cost 2599.99, 200 more than it said the camera would cost when it was announced last month.

The D4 will cost 5289.99, rather than 4,799.99.

And the Nikon D800E will now carry a 2,899.99 pricetag not 2,689.99 as was originally stated.

Nikon has confirmed that photographers who 'pre-ordered' one of the cameras before 24 March need only pay the original price.
The firm was quick to stress that the glitch only affects customers in the UK and Ireland, and is not Europe-wide.

A spokesman for Robert White told us that the issue was a 'foggy subject' and that it was attempting to clarify the position with Nikon UK this morning.
The D800 and D800E being bumped up 200 doesn't seem to killer for me, but would be bad for people looking to buy this camera. Although since pre-orders are being honored, and the camera being huge under pre-orders, it seems like it wont' be too big a deal. Similar with the D4 being raised by 500.

Sloppy move though...crashed some of the momentum they gained with all the hype. Well they're just humans after all .
