Ergonomically and functionally perfect. Otherwise, some flaws.

Summary: This is an outstanding camera. There is no question about that. I have been using this body now for approximately 2.5 years. I know this camera inside and out; I know it well and use it daily. That being said, I would like to first emphasize that some of the best cameras in the world are capable of taking lousy pictures, and some of the more worthless throw away cameras have captured some quite breathtaking pictures, so let's try to stay technical, because that's what...
Summary: I've owned the D2x for several years. It is still a great performer, albeit more limited now since the advent of the D300, D700, and D3s (all of which I own also). I will never get rid of my D2x as it is, as I said, a great performer...workhorse build, excellent low iso performance, overall still produces outstanding images. What confuses me though is that Amazon is still selling it new for @$5,800. What's up with that.
Summary: I replaced a Fuji S2 Pro with a Nikon D2Xs in 2006. The D2Xs is in an entirely different league. Mostly, one has a lot of superlatives and a few quibbles to say about the D2Xs. The one drawback to the D2Xs is that as a Nikon professional product, pretty much everything that is an accessory specific to the D2** line is priced professionally, too. The Nikon D2Xs uses a 12MP Sony imager. The color performance of the imager is neutral and has good color accuracy.
Summary: Why on earth would anyone spend 4k on this when you could spend the SAME 4k and get D3.....which is superior in EVERY way?????? Please tell me? If you have 4k and are in the market for DSL, get the D3.
Summary: I'm not going to go over the technical aspects of this camera. There are lots of other places that do that. Anyhow, I shoot professionally on the side, and this camera does just about everything well, except for sports photography. The autofocus and noise level is not nearly as good as its chief competitor. The high speed crop (8fps) reduces the quality of the image, and I'm not talking about megapixels.
Summary: I jumped in the ocean with the Nikon D2X---got the camera in late February 2005, on the first day they were available in Scotland. I also bought the underwater housing for it almost emmediately. The Austrian housing manufacturer, Subal, had used the nearly identical body and controls of Nikon's D2H to develop a housing for the D2X before it had even shipped. The results of those initial dives made me very happy.
Summary: I have been a professional photographer for more than 42 years and a photography teacher for 38 years. This is simply, the best camera I have ever owned. This is the first audio focus camera that focuses faster than me, its a bit heavy, but I'm a bit older. Couple this camera with a fast lens, (f1.4D, f1.8D, f2.0D, f2.8D), and if the pictures are not good, then its you.

Summary: An amazing construction - the D2Xs is a paradox in itself. Strong as an ox and yet as delicate as a butterfly - this camera is control and power in one rock hard package. Simply the finest Pro camera you can buy without needing a 2nd mortgage. In the words of a Mr F. Bueller "It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up." Every feature you can think of in a camera is present - and many you can't think of.
