I have 2 D2x's and they will probably be my last bodies as they do everything I require from a camera. I basically only shoot in good light so the ISO is not a prarticular hinderance, I generally shoot at 400 or under. I have a 2.8 Sigma short zoom on one and a Nikkor 300mm f4 on the other and focus is particulary quick.Both have the latest firmware so I don't feel a necessity for the 's' version. I bought one from KEH and one from Ebay and both have less than 60000 actuations and apperarance is flawless. I paid under $600 for each of them last year.I have added a couple of new Nikon batteries. A charger came with one so no problem. Cannot reccommend them highly enough.
