Nikon has been forced to increase the retail prices of its D4, D800 and D800E cameras after it was hit with an “internal system error”.
Nikon has apologized to its customers after a '”local internal systems error” led to the communication of incorrect suggested retail prices when it launched its new flagship digital SLRs – the D4, D800, and D800E. When they were announced, the cameras came with retail prices of £4800 for the D4 and £2400 and £2690 for the D800 and D800E. Now, the three cameras will retail from £5290, £2600 and £280 respectively. The price increase affects the UK and Irish markets but its likely that the effect will be felt in other markets too.
