"RE: Which to buy? D3x or D3s?"
>I would recommend the D3s. The D3x doesn't have nearly enough>frames per second to shoot sports with.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.
