Nikon-D4s_58_1.4_front-1-mNikon has just posted some sample photos shot with its newly launched D4S flagship, full-frame digital SLR. The images, which can be seen on Nikon's Flickr stream and on the Nikon Japan website feature action shots of a skier, swimmers and bike racers. (We've included smaller versions of the D4S sample photos at the bottom of this story.)

The photos are clearly meant to show off the D4S' skills as a sports photography camera. The 16.2-megapixel D4S can fire off bursts of up to 11 frames per second with full autofocus and auto exposure. The D4S features a newly designed FX-format (full-frame) sensor that's capable of capturing images in extreme low light at ISO settings of up to 409,600.

The Nikon D4S employs a 51-point AF system that includes a new Group AF function. The Group AF mode uses five AF points for better stability when tracking subjects and improved accuracy by cutting down on background focus.

The Nikon D4S will go on sale on March 6, 2014 for $6,499 (body only) but if you want to get you hands on one before then, stop by the Nikon booth at next week's WPPI show in Las Vegas, NV. Working models of the Nikon D4S that WPPI attendees can "touch and try" are expected to be on display at the booth.
