I own a D100, I'v held a D1, but never used a D1H or D1X. I was doing some looking this weekend at the D1H and the D1X. Here is how I see the D1H:

Solid build quality
Flash Sync Speed up to 1/500
5 Frames per second up to 40 frames
Fireware output built into camera

Max Image Size: 2000 X 1312
Natively only big enough to produce 4x6
Poor battery life
Cost: 3300.00

So I ask why would anyone pay 3300 for a 2.74 megapixel camera whose only benefit would be the number of continuous shots and the flash sync? What doesn't add up to me is the camera is targeted at pros. However, while 40 frames and a 1/500 flash sync is great, at the end of the day you are still dealing with 4x6 shots. What pro only produces 4x6 shots?

What do you guys think?

Give me my D2Hs and 50mm 1.4, then step out of my way.
