Nikon D3

d3
Review Date: Apr 1, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $4,999.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: The D3 has met or exceeded all my expectations. Lightning fast autofocus; excellent metering in all modes; dual CF slots allow oodles of storage on board with intelligent use of same; great rubber feel. Just a solid product.
Cons:
Does not have the little metal bar that Canon does for easy attachment of a handstrap. That means my RRS plate has to be off when the strap is on. Big oversight. Poor placement of ISO button and no way to remap it. MKIII is better in that aspect. Don't like the two handed operation necessary for zooming playback.

This camera has such a solid feel; great sounding shutter, and is just right there and ready for business. I can't wait to get some long glass for it. Results have been spot on, especially in the focusing department. Sharp, sharp results even in RAW mode, requiring very little sharpening or PP of any kind.

Highly recommended.
