Conclusion: It wouldn't be harsh to say that some people were disappointed with the D2H, a great body with excellent performance let down by a slightly experimental sensor which didn't perform to the same level as the rest of the camera.
Pros: Superb resolution, very good per-pixel sharpness, even more from RAW, Multi-talented camera, also offers 'sports shooting' at eight frames per second, Wide tonal range, good dynamic range, smart auto tone selection, Clean image processing, almost no 'digital' artifacts, a more film-like look, Bui...
Cons: Higher noise at ISO 1600 and 3200 than we would hope (with NR off), Smaller default sensitivity range (ISO 100 to 800) than other digital SLR's, Inaccurate color response from LCD monitor (green hue shift in reds), Disappointing automatic white balance performance under artificial light, Some pho...
Excerpt: The Nikon D2X is the lastest in Nikon's series of digital SLRs and goes head-to-head with the Canon 1D mark II and 1Ds mark II. In pixel count the D2X at 12.4MP comes between the 8.2MP 1D mark II and the 16.7 MP 1Ds mark II.
Conclusion: Nikon D2X digital reflex camera The Nikonians have had to wait a long time for the Nikon D2X. For some maybe just a bit too long. And after the introduction it took a while before the first cameras were shipped. But all this waiting was well worth it.

D2X for a review but on the other side we find the Nikon D2X

Conclusion: Handling-wise, we had no complaints with the Nikon D2X. Controls were strategically placed and the durable magnesium alloy body comes armored in rubber seals to keep out moisture and dust. It is built to last too, with a rated shutter lifespan of over 150,000 counts.
