Re: Going from D800 to D3s..... Am I Crazy??
In reply to Fogsville, Feb 8, 2013

I've struggled with this one since I got the D800 coming up on a year ago. I love my D3s, and use it routinely for sports and when it makes sense to have two bodies. But the dynamic range improvement in the D800 is real, especially in poor light. That, and the recovery headroom of the D800, especially in Lightroom 4, is amazing and hard to give up once you've had that freedom. For 90% of what I do (mostly concert, corporate, portraiture and landscape), I go to the D800. The lighter body is also an advantage, especially for the longer shoots. But sometimes I need *insanely* high iso, and a f/1.4 lens on the D3s is pure magic.

So I keep them both.
