And don't forget the D3X topped out at ISO 1600 (+ HI modes), and in FX mode at 3.5fps, so it also didn't live up to the then FX expectations of great high ISO performance or frame rate; the D800 is a MUCH better low light camera, and about the same frame rate.

I'd be very curious to hear of anyone actually buying a D3X lately (new) and why?
