I have sold most of my DX kit and now only have the D3 and a V1. I loved my D50 (sorry I sold it) but was never totally happy with both D300 and D300s. My wife still uses the D200 which she is happy with.

When shooting wildlife I usually have my 500 fitted to the D3 and a DX body with the 70-200 to catch close-ups. The last trip was chasing after leopards and cheetahs and I used the V1 instead of the D300s. Very happy with the results. The V1 reminds me of the D2h in many ways.

I will however consider the D400 when comes out. The V1 is good, but not that good when shooting fast moving cats. As a travel and general purpose camera I tend to grab it first every time.
