Re: Makes sense, I bought a D3 yesterday...

You cannot buy for the "latest and greatest". You simply have to make such major purchases based on actual need. Otherwise you will "always" be behind. The D3 is looking more and more like the low light speed machine Flagship many initially claimed it was and the D3X (apparently named confirmed now) will be the high resolution "all around" shooter. Nikon stated in a writing from Japan last fall that the new era would involved 2 flagships models as well as keep the DX line viable.

There really shouldn't be any frustrations over this one. Even if the D3X arrives tomorrow, no time factor was needed here as Nikon obviously intended for their 2 flagships to be designated as they are. Unlike the old days of the D1X replacing the D1 and D2X replacing the D1X. Or even D300 replacing the D200. Time was definitely a factor in those situations to not kill one model with another.
This is entirely different providing us with 2 flagships and covering all bases.
Exciting times for sure!
