I have a D200, D300 and will be picking up my D3 tomorrow. I like shooting landscape shots and often find myself mounting and dismounting the my ML-3 a lot which is a bit teadous. Am I the only person who wishes the D3 had a built in wireless radio receiver? I guess it would make more sense on a D3x or whatever FX studio / landscape camera Nikon may be introducting, but would it practical and a worthwhile feature for many?

I have a ML-3 and usually find myself changing positions around the tripod and camera to the point where I am not in alignment with the IR receiver, so I frequently need to move to take the picture or have to twist the receiver head to match my position. A radio receiver would certainly take care of this problem and I would think it could be built directly into the camera instead of an accessory. They could have a menu option to shut of the reciever so it wouldn't waste power. What do you think?
