Hey! I resemble that remark
The D3 is head and shoulders above my older D200, but then again for 2.5x the price I would expect it to be. It is the camera I've been waiting for from Nikon. The larger sensor really allows me to shoot the focal lengths I want in the space I have available and of course the natural light performance will allow me to go into a different direction that previously possible.
I'm no expert and won't give a review, but after a couple of weeks getting to know this body, it is really helping me to improve my work.
