As of now, I get my living through photography(Press/report photography).
I changed positions, where as my old one supplied me with gear, but my new one, requires my own. I got all my lens and stuff, bur unfortunately the D3 has risen in price so making me need to postpone my purchase for a month or two(To understand the situation, the average wage here is about 500 EUR/600 USD per month).
In the meantime I have the d90(and plan on using it in future as a backup/telephoto body)
Video: as I said, I earn my living with photos, so I cannot help you here :) had it on about 2 times, for about 10 seconds :D
- one that strikes is, the need to hold an extra button when locking focus and shooting burst, on the d3 you dont have to do this
- FPS, Matters what you shoot, Landscapes no problems, Drag Races more problems :)
- 51 AF vs 11(?) AF, Same as FPS
- Comparable ISO than D300 (only d3/d700 is better)
- IQ comparable with d300
And of course, you can a have a helluva a body, it is just as good as the lens :)
