Re: THANK YOU ALL! (and some clarifications)

Go get the D3x, it will pleasantly surprise you. The are a lot of comments here about the D800 being superior based mostly on DXO numbers (which is based on questionable testing techniques), but that is mostly from folks who have never used a D3x extensively. It takes a while to get the best out of the D3x, but when you do, you will see why many pro's have stuck with the D3x after trying out the D800. Be aware though that the D3x is mostly aimed at the pro studio photographer and heavy usage and is not a carry around happy snappy camera as was the intention with the D800 (as proved by the inferior body and many production problems).
