With both Nikon’s new cameras being “in the wild”, housing manufacturers are working around the clock to provide housings for them.
Wetpixel are ready to dive the new Nikon cameras (and the Canon 5D Mark III) as soon as there are housing available for them. Indeed Wetpixel’s Associate Editor Alex Mustard is currently in Iceland with the D4.
Please keep checking back for the latest updates.
Hugyfot has previously announced support for both cameras, with a priority being placed on preparing the D800 version, which they expect to have ready in May. At the recent London Dive Show, they were showing 3D renderings of the new housings.
Pictures have been published on Facebook of a working prototype Nauticam’s new housing for the D4. Interestingly, this features fiber optic ports, so it seems likely that the housing will have some built-in device that will allow the D4 to trigger strobes optically.

Sea & Sea has released released renderings of their MDX-D800 housing. It features fiber optic strobe triggering and is planned to be released this month.
UPDATE: Stephen Frink has posted a series of images of the Seacam D800 housing on the Wetpixel forum:
