Again, it really depends on what you are shooting. I tend to shoot sports most often, and do some portrait, fashion, bikini work as well. For all of those in outdoor shooting, my choice of camera is as follow:

1. D800
2. D600
3. D7000
4. D3s

For pure sports work, #4 an #3 swap places.


>There are other benefits to the D3s in terms of FPS, buffer,
>etc.

True, if those things are important to the shooter. The question here was solely about image quality, so I didn't factor them in.


>I don't think the IQ of either the D600 or D7x00 are clearly
>better than the D3s, depends what you are shooting.

In my experience, they are clearly better. I have far better shadow gradation, more than a stop better dynamic range, better skin tones, better color rendition. The files are also easier and better to retouch.

I will be shooting the D600 and a pair of D3s in a week for night softball, and will be able to do a A/B comparison at ISO 3200 and 6400 at that time.
