Wanting and getting are two different things


Just cause my dealer said I could get one did not make the D4 required and as many here know, I sold it and back to my D3X, Leicas and one of my favorite the Canon G1 X!

Yes, you've made this clear. Thanks!

So Mr. Fresco, how you find you really need the D4 and did not just want it!

I never said that I "needed" a D4.

I was quite happy with a D2H!:

1/1000s f/4.0 at 400.0mm iso250

The D3 was a step up and helped my keeper rate, made FX available to me and of course had significantly better high ISO performance.

As I mentioned previously, I'm about to fly overseas and thought it a good idea (not needed) to have a back up camera. Renting a D3s would be $600 down the drain. I had the opportunity to get a D4 so I got (not needed, just thought it prudent to have a good back up camera).

Also I'm enjoying the D4's better focusing capabilities. Helps with bird stuff:

1/640s f/6.3 at 200.0mm iso400

BTW, I have never used a D3X. What types of uses do you find for yours? I'd love to see some of your examples!

Best Regards,
