"RE: Throw The Dice: A D2X Or A D2XS?"

Are you asking if going from a MP camera to a 12MP camera, if shot well, would solve your soft printing issue due to lack of resolution? Of course.

If you want more resolution, want a pro body, and don't want to move to a D3, then the choice is really made for you.

If you do NOT need a pro body, then the D7000 trumps the D2x is just about every way I can imagine. And yes, I own both. As well as a D2H, and D3s.

While the date of these postings are current, the argument is historical and was hashed out years ago when the D2x was a new camera.
