Is a Nikon D3 still a good camera?
May 15, 2014

I am an advanced amatuer. I shoot mainly high speed sports, and have recently shot two weddings which turned out well and I am seeking more. I do get paid for my work and often print large 20x30. Venue's range from inside to outside with some poor lighting. I am currently shooting with a D7000 and want to make the jump to a FX body and not sure where to go...

There is a 13k D3 on CL for sale here for a good price, its in great shape and the original owner seems like a good guy, so i am not concerned with abuse. But the price will be close to a new D610 or a used D800. I would love a D3S/D4 but price is hard to justify. I feel that the D4 file size is ideal and 36mp on the D800 is overkill, but would love either.

I only have good glass, and have sacrificed the body for glass, but am ready for the jump now.

Its a conundrum i know... Appreciate your thoughts.
