It will be available in late July

Nikon announced the D810 HD-SLR today, which aims to replace the D800 for professional photographers and cinematographers.
The D810 sports a new 36.3-megapixel, full-frame FX-format sensor without an optical low pass filter for increased resolution and dynamic range (the base ISO has been lowered from 100 to 64). Nikon’s EXPEED 4 image processing engine also allows the D810 to deliver enhanced response and performance. 
The sensor adds micro lenses that optimize the light-gathering capabilities, thus improving image quality at high ISOs. The EXPEED 4 image processor improves JPG output and has a 30 percent increase in overall speed.
Compared to the D800, the rear display is unchanged in size at 3.2 inches. However, the brightness is increased due to a 1,229k-dot design that includes white dots in addition to the standard red, green and blue.
The autofocus system still has a 51-point autofocus system, but it gained the Group-Area AF function. 

Some other little improvements include a redesigned mirror in order to minimize vibrations; a Split-Screen Display zoom that magnifies two separate areas of the frame; video footage at 1080p60 with H.264 compression when recording to a memory card; the ability to output uncompressed video to a field recorder; the internal microphone is now a stereo design rather than a monaural with wind reduction; automatic ISO control gradually adjusts during video; zebra stripes now mark blown-out highlights; enhanced interval recording, which creates time lapse videos; the ability to capture up to 9,999 shots over a one-week span, and a metering system that adjusts gradually from shot to shot to reduce the flickering effect. 
“Once a user experiences the intense level of fine detail they are able to render using the immersive resolution of the D810, it will be hard to imagine a project without it,” said Masahiro Horie, Director of Marketing and Planning, Nikon Inc.
“When coupled with the amazing imaging capabilities of NIKKOR optics, the D810 becomes a powerful storytelling tool to create images and broadcast-quality video with unprecedented detail, dynamic range and sharpness.”
The Nikon D810 will be available in late July for about $3299.95 USD. Also, the MB-D12 battery pack is currently available for $616.00 USD and the new Capture NX-D software package will be available mid-July for download at no additional cost.
