Re: D3X or D800/E

I used to own the Nikon D3x, now I have the Nikon D800e.  I mostly shoot landscape and still objects.

What I like about the D800 compared to the D3x is

Its smaller and lighter ( but possible to add the grip if needed )

Little bit better resolution if used with good lenses , tripod, mirror lookup.

Better dynamic range.

Cleaner on high iso.

Used to be cheaper ( probably about same price now )

more cropping capabilities.

On the plus side the D3x body is probably a lot stronger and the battery life was better to.

But it don't matter so much for me ,  I still get about 900 shoots on fully charged battery on my D800.
