Summary: This camera is all I thought it would be and then a whole lot more. After having it for only three weeks I went and shot an event and was so pleased how many grab pictures where actually very sharp. I can't wait for High School football to start!
Excerpt: I'm pro weddings and child portrait's photographer and i have a couple of Fuji S5, and D2Hs, so the D3 is amazing camera for image quality and i'm very satisfied for skins tone and the dinamic range is so good.
Summary: The D-3 Nikon has been great. The thing I'm concerned about was the box had been opened, the camera seemed to have been used and strap was missing. Although Amazon was able to correct the problem of the strap quite quickly and the camera seems to be fine, we are talking about a $5000.00 camera, somebody should have checked....Thanks....Rob Mueller.
Excerpt: Probably the best pro camera i have ever used. I did have a problem with the shutter about a month on two after purchase. it was repaired, not replaced. my only other complaint is the loudness of the shutter, in a church or similar venue, it is definitely a distraction. otherwise it's a great camera. i kept my d2hs for my surfing photography. where light is not an issue, i think the d2hs gives better results in sports photography. jury's still out on that though.
Summary: Nikon D3 12.1MP FX Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) This is the Nikon I had been waiting (and waiting, and waiting) for -- a full-frame DSLR. Sure, Canon has had full-frame DSLRs for many years, but I have a significant investment in Nikon lenses for my Nikon bodies (including the F4s, F6, D100, and D200, among others).
Excerpt: Absolutely fantastic camera Been a Nikon user since the F2 film i've been waiting all this time for Nikon to come out with a comparative to the Canon pro series I nearly switched camp Now that they are back on track I stick with the brand the D3 is a real work horse and now with the D700 as a second body WOW!!!
