Default Nikon D3 Shots

Some foul language there, no filters, so be warned...

Images aren't full size, but there are many 3200 and 6400 ISO shots that are damn near noise free...

5000 bucks for a body only. no thanks. my D50 will take excellent quality images with a good quality lens, and you cant tell the difference on a computer screen. maybe for large professional prints it would matter. but i'm not a professional

plus, you could buy a nice ssei for that!

D50 can't run with the D3 at those ISO'* period. It also can't come close to the FPS that body is capable of.

No it'* not for everyone, that'* for sure, but damn it sure opens a lot of doors shooting wise, I can't wait till it trickles down.

It'* not just the image quality of the D3 that shines... the D50 is a tin can compared to it. D3 is a true professional body. I don't think you can even put entry-level consumer DSLRs in the same sentence.

D3 would be of great use for me - I shoot concerts. Without flash. My Sony A700 goes great up to its limit of ISO 6400, but obviously the D3 still blows it out of the water. If I wasn't blessed with all my old Minolta AF lenses, D300 would be my choice.

FILM FTW
