Not much difference? Huh? The V3 has different sensor, viewfinder, review screen, memory card slot, battery, shooting speed, etc.


V2 - built-in viewfinder

V3 - removable viewfinder (higher resolution too)


V2 - 14 megapixels

V3 - 18 megapixels (and no anti-aliasing filter)


V2 - fixed rear review screen

V3 - fold-out rear review screen (touch screen too)


V2 - SD cards

V3 - micro-SD cards


V2 - EN-EL21 battery

V3 - EN-EL20a battery


V2 - ISO 160-6400

V3 - ISO 160-12800


V2 - 73/135 point hybrid focusing system

V3 - 105/171 point hybrid focusing system


. . . and if that isn't enough for you to think there are a lot of differences, there are a whole lot more differences than those, including built-in wi-fi, different button and dial positions, digital image stabilization, continuous focus shooting speed of 20 fps vs. 15 fps, etc. All sorts of stuff has been improved. It's a much bigger upgrade than the upgrade from the D200 to the D300. Just the fold-out screen would have been enough to call it a significant upgrade, but this thing has faster performance, a 28% higher resolution sensor (with no more anti-aliasing filter), and much more! Just the different battery and memory card makes it significantly different!
