VERY interesting. Something has to happen in the Canon camp!

So no mention of release date.  What good is this information other than to stifle sales of the D4?

Good point.

Canon's response could be.

Next gen revolutionary canon 1DX ii with improved AF, better IQ, and faster FPS....coming sometime in the future!

The previous Nikon S versions have been very minor increments. Expect nothing more than a bigger buffer and faster processing to go with it. As far as I know there's never been a new sensor or an increase in frame rate introduced with an S version.

By all accounts this won't bring Nikons flagship up to 1D X levels of performance.

That depends on what the D4s can do - if it just narrows the gap the pressure is more on emotional side. Even a slight edge wouldn't have much impact. And seriously surpassing the 1Dx would warrent a promotion to D5. not just the incremental s. As for video: 1080p@60 would be expected, but the 1Dc can do that too - it would require 4K with RGB readout and at a decent framerate to get folks seriously interested.
I'd say the D800 is a stronger "something has to happen"-factor ;)

Hmmmmm I wonder if this body will be of a higher MP form than the D4? Canon who knows?

And if it does or bests Canon, what then?

I would expect them to give a lot more detail at the actual announcement, in a few days time

Btw: Canon still has no competitor to the D800E. The 1D line is twice the price of the D800.  Maybe Canon will be able meet our wishes in 2014 (high MP Cam @ moederate costs, 7DII,...)

The Nikon D3300 is another competitor. What will Canon do?

It's a lot of information. "No new sensor", is the first thing I read in the announcement. Nothing about "high res".
So it will be the same old 16MP D4 sensor , probably in the "improved" Df version. No increase in fps. Slightly tweaked AF algortihms (no new AF module). Slightly improved new "X peed" chip. Somewhat better video. Maybe, just maybe WiFi built in. Yawn.  :P

Instead of a kick-butt D4x based on the 36MP D800/E sensor plus revolutionary new dual-pixel AF.  ;D
WiFi, NFC, GPS and radio wireless flash commander built-in. Along with 2 matching radio-controlled CLS/iTTL speedlites and transceivers for existing older speedlites, instead of continued stone-age optical triggering. ;D

found @ dpreview: "Nikon has announced it is working on the D4S which, like the D4, it describes as an 'HD-SLR.' Details are extremely slight, with the company promising a new image-processing engine and improved autofocus performance."
