My only gripe with the camera is the sensor's tendency to attract dust. I shoot outdoors in the dirt. Even though I never change the lens (200-400) and clean my kit every week, the sensor dirties up after around 3 weeks.

That too was my only complaint with the D3. Mine seemed like a dust magnet. Other than that and it' size which over time became a bit too much for me, I thought my D3 was superb.

I learned how to clean the D3 sensor, but since I shoot sports and almost always shoot wide open, dust hasn't been a problem for me. When I am ready to go on vacation and shoot landscapes, I pull out the kit and clean.

"Transport is a subtly political business. Left-wingers like trains
(central planning, low fuel consumption, largely egalitarian seating).
Right-wingers like cars (freedom, independence, individualism). Only
the bicycle crosses the political divide: it embodies both liberty
and equality." This is the first paragraph from a short article titled
"The Bicycle is Best" by Emma Duncan
