THIS is the point

The vast majority of top photographers, who are the prospective buyers of the D3X, don't have any idea of the details we are dicussing here (the more expensive the camera, the less technical knowledge the owner has).

A much lower level example: the Canon 5D2. There were none on the shelves, long shipping time was the norm. Canonites were crazy about getting one a week sooner than possible, as it turned out partly with wrong expectation (but the relative law price offset that). After a few weeks of practical experience, the initial enthusiasm settled, not to say it sank. Now it is there, where it belongs.

I am absolutely sure, that the D3X is an exceptional camera, but even the best one can become cr@p for an owner if the expectation is too high.
