Hi guys,

Not so long ago I purchased a used D3s to upgrade from my D700.
Until this weekend I hadn't really 'used' it apart from getting familiar with it.
Well, yesterday I shot a charity run and put it through it's paces....oh, it's brilliant!
It was paired with my 24-70mm f2.8... So quick on focus, spot on...,
The quality of images looks pretty much the same as the D700 but it is quicker and better at low light...
It was also quicker at writing data to the cards enabling quicker firing...

Whilst my beloved D700 is a fantastic camera the reason for buying the D3s was for it's speed, lower light ability, (ideal for late wildlife shots), far extended battery longevity and it's lightness compared to the 700 with the MB-D10...

No regrets at all.... Love it love it love it...!
