OK, I know some of us beat the heck out of our cameras, but here's a question for those of you with a new D3.

Is the finish on the body as nice or as good as on previous D bodies? I picked up a brand new D3 and the finish, especially on the lower back of the camera, doesn't seem to be finished very well. I notice it elsewhere on the body . . . I wouldn't call it pitted, more like some type of speckled look, much more pronounced than on the D2hs bodies I still have.

Just wondering if this is the norm or if people on the production line were snoozing when my camera came down the line.
