happened before, Greg

DPR did the same thing with the Fujifilm S3 (a wonderful instrument, & the lowest rated ever DSLR in DPR's history)

But the D3X NEF files from imaging-resource seem to be 12-bit files
(at least the three or four I have downloaded).

but you cannot blame them

DSLRs are extremely complex & reviewers are pressed to get a review out in a timely fashion

still after all these years, I would like it if "Professional" reviewers would pay attention & RTFM prior to putting a camera through its paces

they must post something about how well the camera does in its optimized best photograph mode

shooting the D3X or S3 in 12 bit capture does not tell the whole story, though both are outstanding jpg cameras
