More information here..

http://www.theverge.com/2014/2/24/5444142/nikons-fastest-dslr-gets-faster-with-the-d4s-in-march

and it is not 24MP as listed earlier..

The 24 MP was definitely a rumor coz historically Nikon has never upped the MP count in 'S' iteration of any DSLR. But I think that may just happen in the D5 :)

Not too much has changed from the D4 and yet it is $500 more. Yawn! I'll wait for the D5 or D5s.

And to those who thought XQD was dead...umm, Nikon proved them wrong.

It remains to be seen if the target audience for this camera is impressed.

I personally dont go with reviews on CNET and similar websites as they're not really "photographers" .... I would however trust an actual user review from someone who uses this camera for his daily bread and butter...
Nikon FM(black), Nikon FG, Nikon D700, Nikon FM(silver), Nikon FM10, Pentax Spotmatic, Zenith TTL, Minox Wetzlar, Agfa Optima III, Yashica & Rollei rangefinders etc

28mm 2.8, 70-300vr, 200mm f4, 50mm 1.4, 55mm 2.8 macro, 50mm 1.8, 16mm 2.8, 70-210 f4 macro, Lensbaby, Helios 44 f2, 90mm macro, etc

Given a D4 has a MSRP of 390K, the D4s should be priced at around 430-450K

Looks like Nikon has been running out of ideas & charging $500 more for what seems to more or less the same performance as its predecessor the D4.

PS - the Nikon Df is still the Lord Of Darkness. As for the Canon 1D X, well, I'll let the graphic do the talking.
