I couldn't agree with you more with regards to the D3s vs D4, not being worth the extra $1000. I'm still shooting with my D3 and D3s bodies and am very happy with the images that both are producing.
Besides that, I just couldn't bring myself to wanting to deal with the two separate cards (CF & QXD, or whatever its called). I have also been reading about the focusing issues and other problems D4 users are experiencing which further makes me glad that I did not take the plunge.
Grant it each new body has had its issues but I'm still sticking with my D3 and D3s until they stop working for me.
