However, a D3s at half that price of a 1dx when the new D nikon camera is announced will be very difficult to pass up. This is just me thinking out loud.

D3s has a half-baked video implementation and of course I always mention the awkward arrangement of the crosstype AF points all clustered in the center columns. 12MP is most definitely good enough for what I shoot, especially since they are high quality pixels, but after shooting a camera with a 21MP, it feels lacking, at least to me.

You gotta figure, at the native ISO of 51200, it will be AT LEAST 2 stops better than the 5D2, which would put the 1DX well within the D3s territory when it comes to high ISO noise handling, possibly better...at least for now. At 18MP, that's pretty drool worthy. And since the D800 is rumored to be 36MP, I just can't see that they would improve on the high ISO noise that much, if at all. I hope Canon doesn't do the same for the 5D3 because then that would pretty much leave the 1DX as the only FF option. Would be interesting to see where both Canon and Nikon go with all of this. Really doesn't matter since the 1DX won't be available until March 2012, and for those that are waiting it out, much later than that.

Has the TF retired? Or just being utterly lazy?

Im convinced that the 5dIII will be a 30+ MP camera if not close to that. That would make sense why the D800 will come in at 36 in order to get into that market themselves.

In terms of the half baked video on the D3s it depends how much video you do. Im looking at it for images first with video as a secondary thought. What do i get on the image side and the price points as well. D3s on the market after a successor is announced will be a very compelling alternative in which you can take that price difference and invest the dollars else where.

But trust me im drooling over the 1D X! :lol:

I think at this point, any camera I buy needs to have 1080/24p video...and any new camera will have it.

I'd sure love to have one too, but at a price like that, and not being a professional, I have to be honest with myself. All I really want is the sensor. For my purposes of landscape & travel photography most of the other features are "nice to have's" but not necessary. Plus the size is more of a hinderance.

Even the autofocus on the original 5D has never really bothered me. In fact, there's something nice about the 9 point system's simplicity -- having instant access to all the points through one nudge the multicontroller. Sometimes I wish they were a little closer to the edges, and of course only the center point works in the dark, but that's it.

Put that sensor in the 5DIII, strip out all the pro features and upgrade the AF. I'll buy that in a heartbeat.


Really? Really? Maybe you should buy some basic transportation first. You know, something with a steering wheel, AC and a windshield without spiderwebs throughout. ;) :lol:

Well went a few weeks ago and got the skyline at 7am.

Then crossed the bridge and headed to Broadway.

Then went south and stopped by OWS.

Then off to Battery park and took the ferry to SI.

Was a great day and got a lot of pictures, some of which can be seen on my Photog link.

Maybe next time some of you grouchies will come out and hang.

Hey, it was great not seeing you New Yorkers at PhotoPlus. Another successful non-meet thanks to the crappy weather we had on Saturday. I love it when a plan comes together. We should definitely do it again! :lol:
