What is there to say? Simply a fabulous camera. Will show every detail of the subject and every wrong decision the photographer made.

OK, I yield to the pressure. Here's a little teaser from yesterday's shoot. The subject is the emerging buds of  Sorbus aria (Common Whitebeam, however unlike the UK this species is very scarce in Norway and is red-listed, hence my interest in it).

This was taken with D3X and the 200/4 AF Micro-Nikkor. Haven't archived the files yet so no clue about the technical aspects other than I recall shooting under windy conditions in a quite dark forest so shutter speeds were longer than I liked. The NEF is processed with Bibble 5 Pro, since I haven't the glacially-slow-joke-of-a-converter (read: Nikon Capture NX2) on my travel laptop. While Bibble 5 deals nicely with D3X files, it hasn't yet implemented all features so CA removal is not available (well, it is present but harms the image more than it helps) and noise reduction is not working properly (I'm running beta 28).

Another from yesterday - this time with the AF 80-200/2.8 (two-ring model). The tonal delicacy of the manner D3x captures the image shows.

Hi I purchased my D3X in July 09. I work with this camera on a daily basis, The criteria was that it was best suited to studio work and landscape, which are my two main work area,s
I  make cropped images into A1 prints hence the need for 24.5 megapixels I find after using Medium format  the ease and size of the DLSR far more favourable
However, buying the D3x is but the start, After spending substantial time talking to Nikon UK , they told me to get the best form this camera I should use the latest lenses , [sales talk maybe}
But i have bought the three Kings including the Mk2 70-200 and the quality given by these combinations are incredible
Technology always moves on, so the conveyor belt on keeping up, never stops

Just upgraded to a Mint D3X

I know it's an late entry, but 2nd hand prices are really low now and I really dislike many of the D4 'new' features: The AF-S/C leaver push button, video, new toggles and such things...

The huge files of the D800e and the small body, not for me.

Looking forward to try it out, so far I'm very pleased :)

It's a little slower than D3 in shutter lag and you can only shoot at 12 Bit if you need 5 or 7 FPS

at 14 Bit it will only shoot at 1.8 FPS...

 

This morning I met this sweet red head no problem with FPS :), very pleased with the tonality and color transitions.

 

 

Both with 70-200 AFS II
