Good to be back in dpreview. Since I have been gone (around 3 years) I have upgraded from a D50 to a slightly used D2x. My first question is does anyone still use this model? I am an intermediate photographer and I am wanting and amassing tools to work on portraiture. I have a small studio setup in my house, as well as access to a real studio leased by friends who have let me use their space and some equipment. I have 1 SB900 and an umbrella and stand, 1 43" 5 way reflector, as well as various other bounce cards. I also have decent size windows that let in good natural light. I use Elements 7, Lightroom 3.2, and am buying Portrait professional 10 soon. Does this sound like a decent plan?

Thanks in advance
Terry

Terry,

I have a D2Xs. I also use a D3S and D3, but, dont discount the D2X. The D2X can be upgraded with a firmware adjustment to bring it up to almost D2Xs specifications. A friend of mine has a D2X and he was very impressed with the upgrade.

Here are a couple of shots with the D2Xs and a Nikon 500mm F4.

I prefer the D3 series for higher ISO capabillities, faster frame rate and that 3" screen. Still though, we all must start somewhere.

All the best
