I'm now on my second D2x body after having sold Body #1 and regretting it ever since. Given the cost of a used D2x camera at the moment, this has got to be the best value ever in a pro-body DSLR. The images from the D2x (or D2xs) are simply stunning, particularly when used with Nikon's best glass. I happen to use mine with older AIS manual focus lenses (50mm f/1.2 & 28mm f/2.8), but any of the newer, better lenses in the Nikon inventory will produce exceptional pics. The images are sharp, ...

Excellent camera and firmware 2.0 made the noise less apparent at high ISO (the only thing one could complain about). Got mine very secondhand (rough pro handling for 2 years and 40000+ exposures) but it works flawlessly. Works great if you got older lenses. Problems: None, whatsoever

I've just bought an ex demo with 2,000 exposures on it, coupled with the 17-55mm 2.8 I bought for my D200. This is an awesome combination. 2nd hand this has to be the best value for money on the market at the moment. Brutally fast AF, wonderfully faithful colour reproduction and detailed sensor - it's a wonder that Nikon bothered investing in FX technology after they produced the D2X Problems: The only negative I have with it is the lack of pop up flash. I know you're all groaning and saying ...

simply fantastic. never let me down, always delivers highest quality. it should be paired with the best nikkors available to really draw everything this camera can deliver. using cheap glass is a waste of the csamera's potential. Problems: none

I owned a D200 and really loved it. For its price, it was really unbeatable. Then came the opportunity to purchase a D2X... didn't think there was much to improve over the D200. It was not a day against night kind of improvement... but there were improvements in several key areas.... Better built (D200 had a flimsy plastic battery grip), better autofocus, high speed crop mode is useful sometimes, much better battery etc... The pictures also had a different kind of feel (not that the D200 was ...

I'm happy, first, I buy just in time, a rebate of 500$ CAN, goes on D2x. Since july 2002, I work with D100 and last summer I buy a second one. And now D2x, i'ts a great day, this DSLR, is near the perfection, nothing else. And secundo, what's I like... HDR, screen 2.5, USB 2.0, grip, battery, WB and very more. you can see some picture at : studiomanning Problems: The depandence, that the problem ;-)

Have used Nikon DX1 for 3 years before upgrade. After 3000 photos with DX2 seem to have less problem with dust on CMOS/CCD. Glad to have stayed with Nikon to use same lenses. The ~1.5 multiplier effect is an advantage with telephoto lenses. Great photos! Probably a fair price for a great camera. Problems: None so far

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 ...

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 ...
