>D1x FTW! I love my camera! It produces beautiful photos for >me, and that's all that counts.
Same here! I stopped using my D1X for awhile when I got my D200, but I have gone back to my D1X recently. The images I get from my D1X are absolutey amazing! I find that the skin tones are very accurate with my D1X and it is very responsive.
Mostly just the D3 . The D2X(s) is twice as popular as the D3X, and the D1X is within statistcal error of the D3X popularity. It would be interesting to run this poll every January and chart the progression... ok, I'm a nerd.
I have finally found (what seems to be) the best all-around digital camera in the D3. It has excellent image resolution, files are not too large, noise is almost non existent, all in an excellent size camera.

Gotta agree with Paul on this one. I mainly shoot 14 bit RAW to allow for vignetting (without bands) later down the line. These files are huge on a D3. On the Canon 5D Mark II I just bought, they're almost unbearable. You get maybe a little over a hundred shots on an 8 gig card. That's just stupid big.
I've found that I got pretty darn good poster size shots from my D70 back in the day. I'm thinking 12 mb is enough for the type shooting I do.
My heart goes out to these commercial guys who can never get a file big enough to suit their customers At least I'm not upgrading my computer so often in addition to cameras.....
I used a D1 until early this month. I really liked using it, and it was a great transistion from the F4s to digital. I got some decent 12 x 18 prints using raw and Genuine Fractals. Finally got a used D2X. I love the resolution and output from the D2X but long for the simplicity of the D1. I wish I hadn't had to sell the D1 to recoup some of the cost of the D2X.
