Re: Thinking of buying a nikon D2xs

Having shot around 70,000 frames wiith D2x's when they were current, and having shot closer to 100,000 frames with three D7000's up until April of this year, I would cast a strong vote in favor of what Shotcents advised.

I can think of no niche where the D2x performs better than a D7000 (although I don't recall frames per second at the moment).

Back when I was shooting D2x bodies, if a product like the D7000 had been a reality, I'd have thought I'd died and gone to heaven.

Among the D7000 advantages:

Overall faster and more friendly operation.
Bigger LCD screen.
Quiet compared to a D2x.
Insanely better battery charge life.
Ability to use the internal flash as a CLS controller.
More pixels.
Uses dual SD cards.
...and I'm sure there are others which I've forgotten.
