  1. Hello to everyone,
    For those who are interested - I just have put my most recent review online,
    which is my personal comparison of these two cameras.
    You can find it here: http://www.nyman.com/NikonD3vsNikonD2xs.htm

    I hope you have some good time reading it - if you wish, email me questions

    "The main base setting of speed is an ISO 200 equivalent and if you need
    a one-stop lower sensitivity for a certain reason (too much light??),
    then you can do so, but there is no visible advantage of ISO 100 over 200."

    Is there any disadvantage to pushing the ISO down like that?

    "It is pretty consistent what I observed - the D3 shots are brighter
    than the D2 shots. I need to point out that they are not overexposed raw
    files, I would say, these files reveal the fact, that the D3 has got a
    larger and wider tonal range - a wider range of exposure which can be
    used for imaging."

    Does that account for that much exposure difference though? I'd like to
    see the numbers for that.

    Yes. The manual says you will lose some contrast.
