Nic,

You have the beast so just show us it's stuff.
That will silence any questions about it all.

And thanks in advance!

You know, I will, as soon as the D3x starts renting in Manhattan, I don't know what the damn problem is, it's almost February. But I do have friends who have seen it against a 39 MP Leaf, it's not close they say, kind of like 35mm against 2 1/4; ever look at that difference? Sort of the same thing, or so they say. I'll say as soon as I can. But don't forget, a hell of lot of pros shoot the Leaf 39 MP on a 4x5 with large format digital lenses, average price of the lens almost as much as the D3X with lens mount and shutter and all that. The D3X won't hold a candle to that set up, it isn't just Hassy H1 lenses it competes against. Give me your best Nikon prime on the D3X, okay, sure, and I'll give you my best on the Leaf and it isn't a Hassy lens, it's a Sinar digitar, so there you go.
