I getting the impression that this beast will
make the perfect landscape camera. A little heavy
for week long trips into the back country at 5 pounds with that sweet 14-24mm. But I’m getting a little discouraged by what some people are saying about the D3 for landscapes and wildlife. Is it for Press/Sports only? I know Nikon they really want to get back into this market in a bad way. I’m not an engineer like most on these threads. But this is going to be a costly for me if I screw up this purchase. First let me say, I’m going with this set-up because it seems like the best bang for the buck over the competitors right now. The future so called, D3x is going into to be 8 grand plus. I love the specs of 14x24 lens, and I'm really beginning to think this new sensor is capable of some extremely large and detailed prints. From what I've read about test shoot ant a Mets game and a few other first impressions. Who needs 21 little bottles of wine when you can have 12 one gallon jugs of detailed color with great dynamic range. That's my logic. I shoot pre-dawn landscapes mostly. In cold/wet hostel enviroments, sometimes. Digital noise kills me. This will be my first foray into a complete Nikon System. I want to make the right move and MF is not a option.
