    Default D2H or S3Pro -- Which one?

    With the latest price of the D2H (US and Japan) , it is almost the same price range as the S3 pro.

    For an all-around use , which one would be a better buy?

    nasty204 - why not wait for the detailed review of s3pro to come out first b4 deciding? anyway, d2h will be replaced by d2x soon. so, guess its worth the trouble to hang in there first b4 deciding.

    Both are equally good.
    Difficult to decide.
    Just follow your heart if you already have something in mind.

    For me, I will go for D2h.
    Why ? All Nikon Policy, I will use all Nikon product.

    Simple... one uses a Cam2000 module, the other uses a Cam900 module, D2H can do wireless FTP to a server as you shoot. D2H has CLS, i-TTL.

    S3 Pro? I won't know but if it's a pro body I'd sure hate to use a F80 metering/AF module on it.

    LBCAST vs Super CCD? Hehe.

    D2H's tracking is meant for fast action, D2X is more of an all rounded camera la, of course it won't be replaced. If it was to be replaced, then long ago release D2X liao lor.
