    Default nikon D2Xs or D300s

    Is it worth buying D2xs or upgrade to D300s ?

    I like the solid body of the earlier, but i think technology wise, D300s better ? is it ?
    I am using d200 now, the iso sucks when bump up on 800...ppl using this machine will know

    If I'm not wrong, D2's iso capability is just a little better than d200. Have not tried the D2xs though. But I own a d200 really sianzzz of the ISO when I shoot night sports. I think d300s is a better choice since they have similar fps and iso capability should be heaps better. D300s's built is as good as the d200.

    D300s definitely,

    my preference, if u don like d200 tech, u buy the d2x/s will be the same, u will dump it too soon, maybe abit better only, screen is worse than d200.

    Note the Normal ISO range of d2xs is max 800 only. ISO 1000 is called H0.3 , H is not recommeded to use.

    Bro, certainly the D300s for it's ISO performance, 3D tracking.

    Not to forget the aibility to remove battery grip when you don't want to look obvious.

    Definitely D300s. The obvious differences in the technical specifications should not be ignored above the physial build of the body.

    Cheers

    Erm.

    D2xs at ISO 125.
    D300s at ISO 200.
    D3/D3s at ISO 400 and above?

    I suppose in theory the D2xs can cover ISO 200 too ^.^

    Neither d300s or d3xs. Go for the D300. More worth than the D300s unless you shoot videos on nikon which sux!
