I need input. I have a d2x a d2hs & my backup camera is my d70 which hardly gets used at all. I mostly shoot 2 different events-Portraits in studio & on loaction & high school sporting events. I use the d2x for the portrait woork & the d2hs for the sports. I have the d70 as a backup & I take it with me for family events (it has the built in flash)I wasthinking of selling it now that the price was reduced on the s3 to $1999 & I also get a $400 kit if i buy before Nov 30.
My logic behind it is that right now the d70 isnt really used at all only now & again but if I had the s3 as a back up I think because of the extended DR I would find myself using it more. Now I know its slow as hell but it seems to take great pictures & has great skin tones even in jpeg (I almost always shoot in raw but on my d70 for family snapshots or on vacation I shoot in jpeg & get the shots printed at a local store kiosk)so whatya think? is it worth it will I like it anyone have one?
