Nikon D3

d3
Review Date: Feb 5, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $4,995.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: same great ergonomics of the D2 generation. high ISO easily two to three usable stops better than D2x.
Cons:
The shutter release is still loud. White balance still crummy in mixed lighting.

This camera will probably be it for me for the foreseeable future. It offers everything I need in terms of image quality, low light capability, and general do-it-all cameraness. Great file size for wedding photography!

Pros: image quality, frame rate, buffer size, DX compatibility, 1.5x magnification factor
Cons:
technique MUST be perfect, large file sizes, still need more dynamic range

Wonderful camera. Highly recommended.

 
Nikon D2Hs

Review Date: Jun 8, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $3,199.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: responsiveness, image quality, white balance, large LCD, responsiveness, ability to accept older lenses, battery, SB800 i-ttl flash capabilities, did i say responsiveness???
Cons:
images have a tendency to appear a bit warm in some situations (easily fixed in Nikon Capture) which adds to the workflow.

I think Stripper's post was excellent and reflects my feelings very closely. I have always been a Nikon guy, so this was the logical choice for me. The largest file size I've printed out thus far is 16x20, which it handled with no problem. The lossless compression option allows me to get nearly 300 images on a 1GB card. Try to do that with an 8MP camera LOL. Will I purchase a D2x? Probably. But I'm not one of the guys who is going to wait another year for an (as of 06/2004) unannounced camera. I've got quality right now. Why wait???
