Nikon D3X Complete Review

Thom Hogan posted the latest review on the brand new Nikon D3x and indeed a very thorough review IMHO. His take on the Nikon D3X and I quote, “the D3x produces excellent, best-of-class images, but that comes at a price that’s the highest of any existing DSLR. You’ll need really top notch lenses and technique to resolve that performance. Are you really ready for all that portends?”

Click here for the full review.
