That's the problem with these upper tier bods, photojazz - you learn to like 'em immediately! But then, you'd have a similar experience with the D300 - 100% viewfinder, awesome controls and big LCD screen. For 15% of the price too - get yourself one...

For those still reeling over the D3x's stratospheric price tag, imagine what kinda stuff will be out there when a D3x is selling for say... $900! Whoa - that'll be one incredible body rush!


Thanks Mule. I have checked out the D300 but was more interested in the FX options. Fasnet begins in two weeks and I will begin shooting some of these events. There is a need for a more advanced system such as the D300 for some of the low light show events.

Still on a high after looking through the D3x. Next weeek, I plan to take a memory card with me and grab a couple of images from both te D300 and D3x.

Any words out on the D700x? That's something I might have an interest in by Christmas. My only concern with the "X" series is the loss of light sensitivity. High ISO performance is what made the D700 attractive to me in the first place. Now with the rumors of an X version coming it makes me wonder if there is any real advantage for someone that seldom makes a print larger than an 8x10.. Well at least if a d700x does come out, it my drive the cost of a D700 into my range. Hmm, then again I'm so happy with my D90 maybe I'll forget the whole body upgrade idea and focus an a 200-400vr..
D50, D90, D100 IR, D700, D800E and a bunch of old manual lenses..
