Tempting myself? Nah, its worth every penny of it!

In one of my previous post in January, I said that I was poisoned but the more and more I read about it, the more the cost justified the equipment. No, I am not going to go out and buy one but after playing with one over the weekend, this time I knew that what I read online were not lies. Yes, the Nikon D3 is as amazing as everyone claims to be.

This amazing feat of engineering is what I always wanted since it was announced by Nikon and still I get some laughs from Andrew saying that after a few sessions with him that I don’t need to drool over this machine. It was at one of his sessions that I managed to try out the Nikon D3.

I took out my 85mm f/1.8 lens and quickly turned up the ISO to 6400 and shot straight from the camera onto my CF card. Here are the amazing results.

Of course since this photo is resized and is rather small, you might not be able to see the fine details of how good the D3 is at 100% crop.

Now isn’t this just awesome? Man do I wish I had two of these babies with loads of f/2.8 lenses with me. Then I guess Andrew might just try to poison me to go full on CLS.

If I wonder how many side jobs I can take with only 24 hours a day….
