p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · trade my d700 for either d3 or d3s


I am thinking of trading my d700 for one of the above cameras. I know the d3 and the d700 share the same sensor. So is it worth it to trade for the D3?? I have a grip on my 700 so thats not a deal maker. I love the two card slots. Now what other advantages does the d3 have??


Part two:

Is the D3s worth $1500 more than the d3 I do a variety of shooting(no sports to speak of). A lot of fpj and some wedding work where the high iso of the D3s might pay off. Why is there such a big difference between the D3 and the D3s. I dont do much video either so thats not something that would sway me toward the D3s. thanks guys.

You need to look up the Thom Hogan Article comparing the D700 to the D3. It lays out from almost every angle what the real difference is.
Found it here:
http://www.bythom.com/nikond700review.htm

Also, the D3S is a newer camera, so it's worth more. For the next few years, it will stay that way, though both of them will drop in price. Oh, it's also about a stop better in noise.

On another note, I have seen several people asking to swap a D3 for a D700 over the last few weeks. Although I can't recall where.

The buffer size has increased considerably and the biggest improvement is the sensor, which is about 1-2 stops better than the D3/D700 sensor at high ISO's. The 1-2 stops improvement is subjective among photographers who believe it is barely one stop improvement, while others believe it's a 2 stops improvement. One thing is clear, however, is that the D3s retains clean colors at extreme high ISO's much better than the D3/D700 sensor.

I moved from D700 to D3s and it was worth every penny (Weddings and dance photography)

We shoot weddings with a pair of D700s. You'll definitely see a boost in your color fidelity at high ISOs on the D3s, but I'd advise holding onto the D700 unless you're really feeling held back by it.

d700 is better than the D3, now for the D3s, I would say go for it, but the D700 is a great camera, I wouldn't get rid of it if I had one.

Bullshit. I've been shootin' 'em both since they came out....
The D700 is a fine body, but the D3 (that started it all) is still great. Noobs! Love this: "if I had one"

Yeah I gotta admit I'm curious to hear the possible reasoning behind a brash statement like that. I've owned 'em both too (and still have a D700 BTW) and I'm at a loss as to why anyone would state that without any explanation... maybe he means "better for sneaking into a concert" or "better for people with small hands and little arms"??

He's apparently a new user to the forum. He's replied to most every thread on the front page. Nothing wrong with a little demonstration of Nikon fanboyism on first meetings.

Just sold my D3s after getting a D800. I do a lot of lowlight (starlight) imaging. The D3s was definitely better (and arguably better than the D4) but not by all that much and when going out I'd more often grab the D800 because I didn't feel like carrying the weight of the D3s on long hikes. All the prices are going to slowly go down so if you don't need it just hold off a bit. If you need it get it and you'll love it.
