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: As an enthusiast, i was really impressed with the image & build quality of the D7000. I still own this camera & still love to use it for indoor work, low light performance is still impressive. The D2XS was a choice for it's speed of handling, although the megapixel count is now ancient, the image quality is truly a beautiful thing & only shooting with it can relay it's images on a personal choice level.
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: I know how to get good deals on the D2x and D2xs. I will not sell it. This will soon be my back up camera when I get a D3 or D3x. I had a D60 then D80 and then D2x and now for a year now, the D2xs. D2x and D2xs are about 90% the same. It is a top of the line camera and also the last of the professional DX cameras (maybe for now). You can not go wrong with this investment. You can get a D3 for 4 or 5k so if you are buy a D2x or D2xs above 3k, you are crazy.
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.
Pros: Controls designed for easy access that allows changing all key variables. This camera takes tremendous images. I'm considering upgrading to the 24.5 megapixel Nikon D3X, but it's hard to imagine how much better it could be than the D2Xs.
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.
