not for a while anyway. I asked Nikon in Sydney about the D3x in stock, they had three left. I spoke to ECS they'll get back to me with a price. I asked about the D4x and was told it would be a bit longer than September this year. Those guys have a good feel for the dates.

New D3x if I get it for the same price as the D4 otherwise the three left can sit on the shelf at Nikon Oz.

Why would you ever buy d3x now that d800 is here? Is weather sealing and built in grip so important that you will be willing to pay more for lower IQ?

D800 is on the way. Break a tool you buy another one...simple. The build of the D3x is important. Still have D700, D2xs, D2hs, D300 kept what I reckon are among the best cameras. When I shoot weddings with my daughter I want good cameras as well as back-up. Organising the D4 now along with D800. If I get the D3x for a good price, why not?!

If i had extra $6K to burn I'd rather add 200 f/2 or 300 f/2.8 to my d800 instead of a 50 MPX camera. Visually you only be increasing resolution by a factor of 1.2 from 36mpx on d800 to anticipated 54mpx on d4x. I doubt d4x would be 54 MPX, probably closer to 48MPX. Based on 12MP APSC sensor in d90 they could have made 30MPX d3X but they stopped at 24MPX. The current 54MPX guess for d4X is based on 24MPX APSC sensor, so chances are it wont go that high.

d3X has worse iq and iso performance than d800.
