Re: Thinking of buying a nikon D2xs
In reply to Shotcents, Jun 23, 2012

Having shot around 70,000 frames wiith D2x's when they were current, and having shot closer to 100,000 frames with three D7000's up until April of this year, I would cast a strong vote in favor of what Shotcents advised.

I can think of no niche where the D2x performs better than a D7000 (although I don't recall frames per second at the moment).

Back when I was shooting D2x bodies, if a product like the D7000 had been a reality, I'd have thought I'd died and gone to heaven.

Among the D7000 advantages:

Overall faster and more friendly operation.
Bigger LCD screen.
Quiet compared to a D2x.
Insanely better battery charge life.
Ability to use the internal flash as a CLS controller.
More pixels.
Uses dual SD cards.
...and I'm sure there are others which I've forgotten.
