Let me say first of all that I own the D3s. It is without question the finest camera I have ever owned or shot. Fast. Amazing color. Flawless AF system. I can't imagine how the D4 could be any better.

However, there is a caveat. Almost everything I shoot is sports. I shoot a lot of images at ISO 12,800 -- and the D3s is spectacular. However, some noise is acceptable in sports photography. I don't know that the same level of noise would be acceptable for wedding photos.

My advice? Ask yourself this question. Realistically, how often do you need

Couldn't agree with this more and this is exactly what I did, sold the 17-55 2.8 and DX bodies, bought the D700 and then the 24-70mm 2.8, a real match made in heaven.

I thought the D3S rendered much better SOOC, better battery, high iso and the shutter is rated at 300k actuations. I think it is worth it for paid gigs, even part time.

Your problem is not the extra $2k but having to get a second one for her when she sees how good it is

Thank you Nikon_14....I was just about to say that. I have no desire for the D800 at all.

I've decided, I'm getting a D3s, I'll just have to wit a few extra months to save up the money. It all bioled down to this....I still LOVE photography, it's my only hobby. I don't drink (anymore) I don't smoke...photography is a healthy hobby. March 23rd will be my five year sobriety day....I'm going to treat myself and "allow" myself to spend close to $4000 as a gift.

Thanks for all your input everyone.

Steve



A hearty congrats on reaching your milestone. I hope you find a great deal on a cherry D3s!!!

I'd go for D3S. Bigger buffer, dual slot, two stop (IMO) advantage.
