hi folks,

I am jonesin' for a D3s upgrade from my D3. I recently purchased the 70-200 VRII and the thoughts of what I can shoot at 2.8 with 12800 ISO makes me giddy.

I am a non-pro and shoot fast action(auto racing-including night races, surfing, etc), and hit the low shooting buffer of the D3 quite often. I also shoot landscapes, and not surprisingly, dusk and dawn are my favorite times to shoot.

So, the D3s will get me a deeper buffer(so I don't have to spend $500 to upgrade my D3's buffer), as well as double the usable ISO sensitivity to 12800.

for those who have upgraded, is the quality at 12800 leaps and bounds ahead of the D3, visually, in terms of low noise?

after selling my D3, I will have an ~$2,000 delta to purchase the D3s, and I'm just looking for opinions.

Thanks!

Jeff
