Summary: It is sharp and exact which is why I buy Nikon. It takes perfect pictures every time. It is fast and reliable great for shooting wedding and sporting events. The extra long battery life makes it a winner.
Summary: Chances are, if you're looking at spending on a D3, you already know enough about photography and cameras to make a smart decision. However, beware of certain sellers like Wall Street Photo who have marked the D3 up to a ridiculous $9,999.00. There is not a DSLR in the world that should cost $10,000, not even the amazing Pentax 645 40mp medium-format DSLR. Realistically, you should not pay more than $6,500 for this camera.
Summary: By far the best camera I've ever had. Excellent Features, Fast Focusing. Great qaulity pictures, does everything I needed to do. Great low light photography & excellent camera for the money. Just love it.
I'm late to the game but this is a heck of a camera

Summary: When the Nikon D3 came out back in 2008, I fell in love with it's look, feel and professional "attitude". I have used Nikons since 1971 so I have drunk gallons of their Kool-Aid. My last film Nikon was the wonderful F5 - a camera that was everything a 35MM camera could be. But that camera was less than $2000 (still a stretch for most of us) so it was significantly less expensive than the D3 when it came to the market.
Another level, breaks the boundries held by lesser cameras

Summary: I am a professional wedding and portrait photographer. We started with medium format film cameras and progressed to the Fuji S2, Nikon D200, D300, D300s and now the D3. We have been using the D300's for quiet a while and they have served well. I bought the D3 only for the high ISO capability but I had no idea how much better this camera is. The focus system is much faster and much more accurate.
Nikon d3 is no doubt a very good camera. You will not be disappointed.

Summary: Well, I work with a professional photographer, and he's kind enough to use his equipment all the time. D3 is the one I shoot with most of the time, and I swear to you, this is one of the best camera money can buy. Keep in mind, this is build for high speed photography, aka sports. What makes it "high speed"? It is the combination of focusing speed+accuracy and frames per second (FPS).
Summary: was looking to upgrade from my D2x and this is defiantly an upgrade. simple menu , great shooting and easy downloading makes this a great camera. it is a little heavy but that is an easy trade off for the picture quality. overall a great camera.
Nikon D3 Exceptional Performance and great value for money!
