2x D3s or 1x D3s+ 1x D3x?

I am about to pull the plug on Canon after many years. I need some advice from those who have used both.

I shoot editorial/ PR and weddings with the odd bit of studio work (looking to increase this).

I am going to buy 2 Nikon pro bodies, what would you do?
Have a D3x as backup and for the fewer times I am shooting in the studio.
Or would it mostly gather dust?

Would I be better served by having two D3s and stop worrying about the drop in MP from my 1Ds mk2.

I am not a high end advertising photographer so do not enlarge huge. Having said that I do love quality and there are times when clients want my images big say for exhibition stands. Usually in these cases the print DPI is quite low, however.

I'm looking forward to getting behind the Nikons but your help in final body choice would be appreciated.



2x 1ds mk2, 1x 1dmk2, 1x 1dmk3, 70-200f2.8, 17-40 f4, 24-105 f4, 28-70 f2.8, 100 f2.8 macro, 85 f1.8, Sigma 50mm macro, Sigma 15mm f2.8, 580 mk2, 580mk1, 550x2, ste-2
