Re: D800 without the shadow of a doubt!

Anyone who tells you on this forum that you should go with the D3X has an agenda, an ulterior motive like selling you a D3X!!

It is simply dishonest to tell you to go with the D3X when the D800 is currently on the market, that is as simple as that.

There is no comparison between the two cameras and it is due to many reasons. The sensor for a start is much better on the D800 than on the D3X and that translates in much higher dynamic range. And many other features that make the D800 stand out in many ways.

Having said that, both cameras are still great cameras. But a new generation camera like the D800 makes a lot of difference compared to an older generation camera like the D3X.

What's your agenda? Because I have both the 3X and the 800E and I disagree with you except where you say they're both good cameras. The 800 is better at a few things and has newer technology, but you're wrong to say that it's dishonest to recommend the 3X. If you really believe that, I question whether you've owned or used a 3X. And FYI, my 3X is not for sale.

To the OP, it's your money, if you have plenty of it, get the 800 if you think you'll need large files for printing. If you want a great camera take the 3X and use the balance for some glass - you'll be delighted with it.
