Do you really need 10 fps to shoot sports with?

I don't. I rarely take more than a single shot at a time, and I shoot a good amount of sports, including division 1 hockey. Hell, I even use a camera that's limited to 3 fps, sometimes, to do that.

Anything 5 or higher is nice, but not actually a must-have.

D3x hits 5 fps in FX easily. And it's just as responsive in terms of lag, blackout times, etc, as the D3/D3s. Those are the specs that matter more than fps.

People did it just fine back when most cameras were 5 fps or below.

Try shooting some sports with your D3x in good light...you might actually like it.
