"RE: D3x, D800"

I find the D3x "works" with many lenses (even old zooms as the 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G)!
The 105 VR is a nice lens, though a bit big, for critters but also for portraits.

I never really used a D3s, but the D3x does have a learning curve. If you don't use a tripod, you need to re-evaluate your hand holding techniques as shutter pressing method

I found out that by starting with a higher speed (1/125th), then slowly reducing speed (in time), you can get surprisingly "clean" shots at much lower speeds.
Same for the ISO, I often use auto-iso at x1 to find out that at 1/60th or less, around f/4, I stay in a correct ISO range without much "noise" (either color or luminance) even in darker surroundings or even at night shots.

After being an Aperture user (I still use it for some specific shots) I use Lightroom 4.1 and am still learning to get the best of it
While most time I shoot for my own pleasure, I do have some paid jobs for the school I teach in, on which I do have to get a result of some sort, usable for press (our own publications) or various shows !
My good friend who did it before me (he died alas!), used a D3s and a 70-200/2.8 (mostly) while I have to play with the 105 VR or smaller prime lenses !
Seems to work But I dislike the shutter noise in a silent conference room...!
