As many of you know, Dave Black's comments on the D3 have been causing quite a buzz on various forums of late. Well, Dave called me today on the phone and we discussed a little about his website and his comments.

Let me tell you-- Dave thinks this camera is a new benchmark from Nikon. And he doesn't say that lightly. He actually had his article read over by a few other photographers who have used the D3, and he asked them "am I going over the top?" The reply was unanimous from other D3 users: "It is IMPOSSIBLE to go over the top when you are discussing the D3".

Dave brought up some other points, too. First, he was using a pre-production camera. The final firmware may even be BETTER than what he tried. He also mentioned that his October issue of "On the Road" contains D3 shots (he wasn't allowed to mention that at the time of publication).

And once again for the record: No, Dave is NOT paid by Nikon to write his website. What he publishes are his own personal comments, not some sort of paid endorsement.
