I'm also looking into an upgrade from my D3 which have served me some time now. Either I get the D3s or the x. Even if I would like both. If I get them both I have no need for the D3. The s-model would be used for my daughters adventures, family and low light situation. While I would use the x for nature and architecture.
The reason I don't want to go the D800 way together with a D3 is that it would mean yet another charger, batteries, L-bracket etc. I don't intend to do video with it as I have a dedicated proper video camera for that. And with the poor video resolution of the D800 it's too much money.
I can get a D3x for $2500 or a S for $2800 both with a 30k mileage. Which is nothing on tanks like these.
But I'm torn between keeping or seeking the D3 if I only get one of the bodies. How would you reason around that?
