Dear Nikonians,

first of all i would like to state very clearly that this posting shouldn´t start any negative discussion about the D2X nor should it be a flame.

I read all reviews i could find about the D2X from very respected sources like Thoma Hogan, Michael Weber, Bjørn Rørslett, Digital Darrell and others. The conclusion they make is that the D2X is a great camera in every respect, handling is great, resolution is great. Some also state that the WB sensor works like magic. But when it comes to noise performance it seems to be the common understanding not to use the D2X above ISO 800 some stated not to go beyond ISO 400.

I also found two reviews stating that noise-performance of the D70 all the way up to ISO 1600 is better then the D2X (something i can´t really believe). My need (and therefor expectation as well) is to get a better noise-performance then achived with my current D70. I´m not willing to pay USD 4.000,- for just having a pro-body and the features which come with it without getting far superior results - even in the noise-department.

Question
I ask the very respected Nikonians used both cameras to give me their opionion based on real world applications.

Thank you in advance.

Cheers
Wolfgang
