Summary of the Nikon D3:
excerpted from Ken Rockwell's site said:
Full-Frame, 12 MP, $4,999.95, November 2007.

The Nikon D3 is FX format: the same 36.0 x 23.9mm as 35mm film: crop factor: 1.0.

The Nikon D3 also does traditional DX (1.5 crop factor), as well as 4:5 cropped from full frame (24 x 30mm.)

Attach a DX lens, and the Nikon D3 automatically goes into DX mode. (How do we trick it to do FX with DX lenses?)

The D3 has 51 AF sensors. Focus offset adjustable for individual lens samples.

ISO 200 - 6,400. Up to ISO 25,600 in a trick mode.

9FPS. 11 FPS in DX.

920,000-dot, high-resolution 3-inch LCD. That's triple the area resolution of the Canon 40D and 1Ds Mk III.

Two CF card slots

Digital level to keep horizons straight!

Styled by Giugiaro.
Ken Rockwell is updating his site with new info as this post is being made and the specs look great so far. Some things are more impressive to me than Canon's new offerings.

i want these.

"The Nikon D3 also does traditional DX (1.5 crop factor), as well as 4:5 cropped from full frame (24 x 30mm.)"
this makes me extremley happy. EXTREMLY.

the DX sensor has loads of advatage over FF, but there still are some advantages to FF. not a lot but some. the fact that i dont have to use FF is a godsend.

i am very happy with Nikon right now. a couple years ago i considered the switch to Canon, but not latley and this seals the deal imo.

right now... i dont think there is a better entry than the D40, a better midrange than the D200 and its a tossup on the pro side. we'll see when the D3 comes out..

holy crap im gonna start saving from now. my D2h is 3 years old, and running strong, but i think a worthy replacement is coming..
