Here, here! I bought my D2h as a second body after my D100 to enable me to meter with all my old manual Nikon lenses. Didn't take long for it to become my primary camera...just love the fit and feel of the large body and 8 FPS has saved my bacon a time or two. The D2x was for a long time my dream camera... Still torn between lusting after a 2x or a D300. The D2x is laid out just like my 2h, so the transition would be simpler. J

Thanks for your replies. During my WWW travels, I see a lot of great work still coming from these cameras and their owners. Most of the time, I just look on PlanetNikon and get impressed. :)

Posted 12 October 2008 - 12:45 PM

My body evolution was D70-->D2H-->D200-->D300. I have the last 3; my daughter has the D70. I have a certain rare use for 3 bodies but for the most part 2 bodies will do. I'm not sure where the D2H will fit into that. My D300 has a grip, which will almost always be attached, for 8fps shooting. The D200 serves well as a 2nd body and is reasonably lightweight. My biggest issue with the D2H, oddly enough, is that its raw files contain a small jpg preview. My work flow is such that a full size JPG is very important to me. That means I either have to use an old version of Nikon Transfer and shoot raw+jpg (that Transfer will merge the JPG into the raw) or I have to do a Save as in NX for all my images, which can be a huge issue if I come home with a thousand images. This came to a head when I upgraded to a Vista machine and found that that version of Transfer simply does not work in Vista. I considered D2X vs D300 too. I went with the D300 because... 1) The D2H (and D2X) doesn't have enough focus points, and they are too big, which is not an advantage with many of my difficult moving subjects. I think the D300 may be better able to maintain focus on difficult moving subjects, in particular where there is a high contrast background (the most difficult situation I encounter and I encounter that frequently). The D300 seems to have less of a tendency to grab the background, which was a huge problem with the D2H. The D2H may be a tad better at maintaining focus once it is locked on. The D2H may be a tad faster acquiring initial focus. My comments comparing AF, though are just very tentative conclusions based on too little shooting with the D300. I'll have a better feel for that after we get into the winter bird migration season and I get some serious birding done. 2) Most importantly I would really like to have a D3/D700 for the best low light performance I can get. The stop or so extra improvement I see over the D2H/D200 is a good price/pixel density/performance compromise. In the short time I have had the D300 I have gotten some nice ISO 1600 shots I would not have gotten with the other bodies. 3) I think live view may help me with some specialty shooting such as my lunar imaging but that is not a big issue because I'm not sure yet if it is going to actually add value to those applications (this is a very minor point not worth making a body decision for me, just a bonus) Advantages of the D2 include the great ergos and the integrated grip. Although the D300 add-on grip is pretty good, it does affect images shot at critical shutter speeds at long focal lengths; just something to watch for and factor into the decision to use mirror delay. I also like the back LCD screen. I don;t like the lack of a bracketing button on the D300; I don't agree with the changes made to that control dial but who am I to criticize :lol:. I'm sure there are more comprehensive lists of differences floating around the net; I think Thom Hogan went into this in great detail. The above is just the hot points for me. I've only had the D300 for a month or so. It will take a full year, I think, to really figure out what body I need in each situation. For now it's interesting to have the options when I am in a position to haul all 3 bodies around. Tough choice Jon; it really depends on your priorities and subject, which I think are very different than mine. I doubt, for example, that the 51 pt AF would be a big issue with most of your work, from what I have seen. So, depending on your need for low light performance, the ergos are probably a bigger decision point. The D2H/D2X are wonderful bodies and a joy to control. If I had a D2Hs I would be even happier with my D2H because then I would have 3 channel histograms (which I think are very important and very missing from my D2H). I would also have better low light performance, based on what I have read on the net. If I decide that the D2H has a big role, it might almost be worthwhile to sell the D2H and buy a D2Hs, which probably wouldn't cost much since I don;t think there is a huge premium on the s models- they are both dog meat on the used market. For you, you would get the s version of the D2X so it isn't an issue (solving the histogram problem but I don't think that would help low noise performance?). Actually, I think the D2X had a firmware upgrade adding 3 channel histos, which Nikon elected not to do with the D2H (and that always bothered me greatly given the cost of the body, treated like a step-child).

Viewing photo want ads or bugging my photo store bud about sales of the D2x, there are none. Owners of these cameras have the same feelings I have towards my D50....Never gonna sell it.... :rolleyes:

I've had the D2X well over four years now. I have not seen the counter in some time but it's up there. I still love it and have been toying back and forth between the D3 and D3X but have yet to pull the trigger. Main reason is, that for my work, primarily at ISO 100, I simply love the body. Sure the D3 series is the same body...... and there are two big factors pushing me.... higher ISO, ambient light potential and the resolution (in the case of the 3X).... but in the end, the D2X is producing awesome images that I easily take up to huge prints. The other thing is that the revenue I am seeing is going straight to the bottom line. I do see the need for the D3X, and can justify the move, but right now, I rather pocket more. I may even be so bold as to skip a generation. But in any event........ I am here........ still shooting..... still perfect for me.

I bought a used D2x in February, and never looked back! I feel bad for my D2h, for while they're both in my bag, the 2h doesn't get used much any more. The 2x is a phenomenal machine, and does everything I need it to do, and quite nicely at that. My next body will be a full frame model, but I'm in no hurry with the D2x in my arsenal. J

I still have and use my D2X and it's still one of my primary cameras. I recently purchased a D300s, which I like a lot but I love the feel of those pro-level bodies. I too am considering skipping a generation -- although I am mightily tempted by the D3s.

My D2h is now my second body behind my D300 with grip, but still used every week, shutter count is at almost 119000 and still going strong, would love a D3 but its still too expensive, Here is a pic from yesterday from the old warhorse D2H

I have a D2hs and a D2x, which was purchased used as is much of my equipment. They are both used,primarily, for wildlife. If I am shooting landscapes, I will use the D2x exclusively. I have found my D2x to be quite noisy at ISO 400 and above. Consider, however, that much of my wildlife photographs are taken at very low light. I use the high speed crop frequently, which was one of the main reasons for this purchase. I am very satisfied with my D2hs.

You know what. I sold my D300 to a friend who had a D200 and wanted to upgrade. I was going to use the money as half of the cost of a new D300sc since I am going to write a book on it starting next month. (Update to Mastering the Nikon D300). However, my wife convinced me that spending the money on a house payment was wiser than buying a D300s, and since Nikon is sending me a sample D300s, I have decided to wait on further camera purchases. I am now using my D2x as the primary camera, and carrying my tiny D40x with me everywhere I go. The next Nikon body I buy will be an FX type (D3x???), so until then my main camera will be the D2x.

Makes financial sense to me DD. FX, DX, D400xc u are "Da Man" and can make great capture with any camera.

Beautiful shot Darrell. I'm currently lusting after a D3s. Night shooters like me can't get enough speed.

Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

I use my d2x every day I love the 400-1600 "noise" - I used Tri-x processed in HC110 many years ago also high speed Ektachrome, Now photographers who only know digital seem to be obsessed with low noise. The D2x CMOS looks good to me at high speeds! It also looks fantastic at 100-200 - I won't be upgrading any time soon Love to all
