Re: What to buy for shooting action that doesn't cost as much as a D4?

You to like  the D3s the best, except for the price. I have the D3, and find it more than capable, even today.  I purchased the D600 because I, too, want a 24mp sensor. While I found it usable to capture football and basketball, I found myself going back to my D3 for sports. The focusing is very fast and covers a larger area. The only problem I find with the D3, is that I had tendency to "machine gun a shot, "  because it is so wicked fast. At  5.5 FPS, the D600 is useable for action, but you have pick your shots.  Doing that , but with the faster D3 is the is ideal way to shoot. After a few games with the D600, I returned to the D3, but with a lesson learned.  I am recommending the D3, if the D3s is not within your budget.
