Why are these people dumping or selling their D2XS. It's a GREAT camera body especially when you have Pro-Glass lenses. It has value and a Nikon dealer will feel you out with a low-ball price knowing you MUST have that D3.. I concur, keep it and practice. Lighting is the key to great captures and what the photographer perceives. Here's many of my D2XS captures-many lighting situations, F-Stops-Speeds-VR AF-S AF etc..... Will the D3 make me a better photographer? Get a grip people, Raw captures 95% of thime enter post production such as CS3.
