Re: Here I am

Very nice Pam!
Thank you.

I have no idea why you would have received flak about posting those in this forum. Afterall the A900 at the very least, is one of the perceived competitors to the D3X. I believe this also holds true for the 5DMKII.

The question becomes whether or not those two models are in the same league with the D3X? Your atmospheric haze noise/lack in detail, of the city scape shot may or may not (depending on too many things to mention), be some evidence of not being equal to the D3X. Yet in all fairness, your little princess shot and crop are stunning!

This may all come down to "more specifcally than ever before", what the user(s) is taking photos of. Example: Printing under 20 X 30 of non landscape type images, in general to not very stressed shooting conditions . . why would one need a camera that cost almost 5K more? You simply would'nt.

On the other hand, the D3X may well prove to be the MF killer of sorts in it's image quality and lens line availability, portability and 1/3 less the price of a true MF system. In that case (as one poster has already stated), it will be a bargain!
