I use a D2Hs which has a bit better ISO performance. My camera is also used extensively for outdoor sports and family events, especially to track down my grand kids. These cameras were on the sidelines for many professional sporting events and the small file size is certainly adequate for web sized sharing and up to 8x10 prints.
I find the integrated vertical grip an asset for family shooting. The D2Hs jpgs also seem to need very little processing other than the required sharpening. Just dug out the charger getting it ready for holiday activities and parties. BTW: I find that using the camera at near base ISO with my SB800 taps into the great Nikon strobe control. I typically flag the strobe, point it up and behind me, set an aperture preferred or manual ambient exposure and then tweak the strobe compensation (only) for effect. Used correctly I get near shadow-less results - hardly any hint of strobe. The overall strobe bumped exposure usually keeps any noise in the shadows at bay.
Roger It's still, ISO, aperture and shutter-speed, right?
