Ryan Brenizer on the D3s (and D3 comparison)
Ryan Brenizer, professional photographer and designated photography blogger at the Great River, has just published his experiential photographer-priority review of the Nikon D3s. With over 200K shots with the D3, Ryan compares and contrasts it to the new D3s from an experiential point of view. Web-size samples and videos are also included. No spoilers, but make some room for dessert, jello is served :)
For more on the camera, be sure to check the D3s reference page, which also serves as a stock-status matrix (see left sidebar). Currently the camera is shipping from Amazon itself for the opening price of $5200.
If you prefer flagship but pay a little less, B&H has the Nikon D3 for $4600, or if you are not afraid of refurbished, Adorama has refurbished D3 for $4000. (we can't use plural, because that's a different model, thank you Nikon marketing).
But still, for a lot of photographers, the Nikon D700 may be the best bang for the full-frame buck in the Nikon world. You can get it for $2400 at Amazon, where you can also take advantage of the $200 instant rebate if purchased together with the 70-300mm VR.
