I love my new D3! The thing I like most is that I actually feel confident shooting it in one of the auto-exposure modes. If I turn on the Active D-Lighting option, it does exactly what it says it will. Fab! The D2x always needed some compensation on bright days and didn't truly reflect a hand-held meter consistently with varying lighting intensities. So well done Nikon. I still think they could have put a small sensor on the camera that would automatically adjust the screen brightness with respect to ambient light.

I have run a few tests using a gretag card to try and get accurate (not necessarily pleasing) colours from ACR. With the D2x I had a couple of presets that would do the job nicely, I am getting a lot of variance on the D3 calibrations. Has anyone else created some presets for lightroom or ACR? I have Capture NX but find it very clunky for a high-volume workflow, I love the Auto CA correction (why can't Adobe do this rather than manual adjustment, I'm also not a fan of the nikon rendering (blues too pale, tinges of yellow etc)

All the best

Simon
