Thank you!

Wow, I didn't know that. How disappointing for the people that had a D3!

Sounds like a D3s or D4 will fit my bill perfectly. Now to only come up with a few $$$$. It's interesting because I'm not normally one that shoots a lot of frames at one time. In my film days I used to use the motor drive just to advance the film. I'd take one shot and be ready for the next, but not machine gunning. Now in the days of digital I need to remind myself that it's okay to shoot a few frames at a time, but periodically I hit the buffer limit because of my enthusiasm.
