Going from an F5 to a D100 , then to a D70S, the D2X continues the Nikon tradition - well worth the loyalty. Great images even in High ASA mode. Works great with most older Nikon AI lenses. A bonus for those that kept their older lenses such as the 35mm F1.4, 105 F2.5 and many others. While expensive, it has all the features I need to get the job done. Problems: The CF cards requires a 3 step proces to remove it. Why would Nikon go this lenght ?? I do not know. Would be nice to have a ...

I now have over 2000 shots on my D2x. After a week with my camera, my father bought one for himself. All of the elements of image quality are absolutely outstanding. Great accuracy in white balance, even under very difficult conditions. Excellent controls, very Nikon. No complaints. It is heavy, but then so are most my lenses. Even though this is by far the most complex camera I have used, it is intuitive and easy to use. Would I buy another for a second? Yes. Value? It gave me ...

What a superb tool for high quality images. Sensible and comfortable in design, easy transition from D100. Just a blast to use. This is a NIKON that really benefits from their best qualtiy glass. 7 months of use. CMOS sensory seems to stay CLEAR of dust, unlike my very portable D50 or the older D100. (D50 is still a very good machine.) cheers and go make great pictures. Problems: Camera does not have self contained mode of transportation. (It ain't light)

I researched DSLRs across the entire price range, this camera was my final decision, and I would do it again if I could choose again. This camera is amazing. This camera has enough resolution to easily crop unbelievably small portions of the image and still get a great 8x10. I used the Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 manual focus lens (the one from the 70s) and took a photo of an ant crawling on a stucco wall. The ant was approximately 1/2 inch at actual pixels. I cropped into the image to make the ...

After bought a Nikon Capture and start shooting RAW NEF, realized that the image quality is super! Also other effect such as B&W can be achieved without lossing details and compromising the quality. It is perfect camera! Although the price is a bit higher, after use it for 6 months, totally fall into it. It worths the value. This camera never fail you. Now I cannot use other camera at all after I get used to it. I wonder what will be the next which Nikon can do to excel D2X?! Problems: No ...

Overall a great camera. I use it for weddings and automotive magazine photography. (strange combo, eh!) I upgraded from a D1X and a Fuji S2-Pro. I kept the D1X for a backup but sold the Fuji as it wanted to fire the shutter when it wanted to, not me...very unhandy. The D2X delivers stunning images although the menus get a bit tedius to manuever through when you are working quickly. Otherwise I love the camera although I feel that it, like all the pro D-SLR's, is somewhat overpriced but what ...

I'm a Nikon bigot. I admit it. My first real camera was (is) a Nikon F Ftn with an F36 motor drive; the collection continues with a Nikkormat ELw with winder (for my wife), an F2-SB with MD-2, and an F2-AS with MD-2. Then life got busy raising kids and a Nikon L35AF fulfilled the need for kids photos. In August I bought 3 cameras; a 1957 Nikon SP rangefinder (bigot, remember?), an E7900 (for my wife) and a D2x. I do have an Olympus D300 purchased about 4 years ago. This unit is the ...

First I gave it a 4.5 due to MY limitations not the camera. I just got it and took it on a biz trip to Scotland, Ireland and other UK locations. I am one of those barely read the manual goofballs so I have yet to create a perfect image. My fault not the camera. Anyhow I had a Canon 10D good camera but got the entire camera and my lenses crunched in Shanghai. I had a decision to make and so I read the reviews and went with the D2X vice the 1Ds MKIIs. Primarily because it takes less time to ...

I own both the D70 and D2X. They are both very fine cameras. I find the D2X just about perfect. I love the fast crop feature and the fact that I can do just about anything I wish, given the correct lens and lighting. The menu feature is easy to use compared to the D70 I own (also a very fine camera). Problems: The monitor should be reversible (similar to the Nikon 5700) as I don't use it that often and only to check WB and exposure. I shoot almost entirely i aperature mode, a flashback to the ...

I have shot approximately 6000 photographs since purchasing the D2X in July 2005. This is an incredible camera. I have shot Ice Hockey indoors at 800 ASA with out a flash and achieved excellent results. The motocross action photo's I did showed an amazing amount of detail. The High Speed Crop function is extremely usefull. I switched back and forth between normal and high speed crop shooting Aircraft at Oshkosh this year. I and others are floored by the quality of photos achieved with this ...
