    It's a new sensor. Fairly impressive to me for a body refresh.

    More bits on the D3s from dpreview: “The D3S sports a new sensor with an improved micro lens array and internal circuitry to reduce image noise. However, the nominal resolution of 12.1 megapixels remains the same as on the D3.”

    ISO 12800 looks nice

    ISO 6400 is very clean

    the iso performance is great. since the MSRP hasnt really changed much from the original d3, i think its an ok upgrade. Not for many people with a d3 to move to a d3s but for many people getting into one.

    Still gonna wait on the D800. D700s wont be enough of a leap for me to upgrade from the 700 (though video is so damn tempting). I can't imagine wtf is gonna come out in the next 5 years.

    why all the hate?

    They took the d3 and made it better at high iso shooting, which it already fucking PWNED at.

    The only thing the camera didn't do was lick my balls and shoot video.

    neither of which I really wanted in a camera anyway...

    6 digit ISO is basically night vision.

    Do people really need 11ty billion megapixels and 1080p vido? If I was really interested in 1080p video I'd just buy a HD camcorder.

    IMO, Apples and oranges :dunno:

    One is a body refresh, and the other is a completely new, next generation model. A more apt comparison would be the 1D4 and the D4 when it comes out.

    It'll be like when the D3 came out and annihilated the 1D3.

    wait 3 weeks later, 1d4 will have a firmware update, 2 months later its first recall! j/k!!

    9fps, 11fps in crop, and 48raw in continuous!!! i dont need 1080p or 24mp, this is perfect for what i mainly do (sports/events!)

    Give me either a D3s or a 1D4. I don't give a fuck either way. Both are going to be bad ass cameras. Let the douche bags on nikoncafe and POTN pixel peep all they want. I'll use the cameras to take awesome photos.

    I dont understand why people are hating on it. Its not a NEW camera. Its an UPDATE to an OLD camera that makes it even better. I personally think its absolutely amazing. Ill believe a 1D4 launch when I see. Rumors have been flying around for almost a year with regards to that.
